Lafayette Public Works Director Kevin Blanchard says one southbound lane of Kaliste Saloom Road will close this week for about a month.

The southbound exterior lane of Kaliste Saloom Road between Republic Avenue to 250 feet south of Lake Farm Drive will be closed between October 15 and November 15.

The road will be closed between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. each day.

Public Works are making road improvements to accommodate more traffic with the new land development in that area.
