Work Begins Next Month To Widen US 90
BROUSSARD, La. (AP) — Construction crews will begin work within a month to widen a 1.6-mile stretch of U.S. 90 from Albertson Parkway to Ambassador Caffery Parkway. It's part of an effort that ultimately could extend Interstate 49 from Lafayette to New Orleans.
The three-year U.S. 90 widening project includes building a new overpass at Albertson Parkway and replacing the old one over the Burlington Northern railroad tracks and La. Highway 182.
James Construction Group, of Baton Rouge, was awarded the design-build project in December with a bid of $57.1 million.
Rodney James, vice president of the company's Civil Projects Division, tells The Advocate the project's schedule should keep traffic congestion to a minimum.
