—Atchafalaya Water Heritage Trail —The Gulf Intracoastal Waterway was designed primarily for commercial traffic but is also used by recreational boaters. It allows vessels and goods to travel more than 1,300 miles through safer waters inland from the Gulf of Mexico.Completed in 1949, the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway stretches for more than 1,300 miles along the entire coast of the Gulf of Mexico from Brownsville, Texas, to Apalachicola, Fla. It is a vital part of a 12,000-mile inland and intracoastal waterway system maintained by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to directly serve 38 states and link many of the busiest ports in the nation. Designed primarily for barge traffic, the GIWW allows barges to transport goods through safer waters inland from the Gulf. Commercial fishermen and recreational boaters also use the waterway to move their vessels to maintenance facilities or other points along the coast.
