  • Several other displays

According to officials, there will be staff members there to answer questions. Louisiana DOTD Shaw Wilson had the following to say about Thursday's open house:

We are gratified to see how the Lafayette Connector project has progressed and look forward to this next step. Public input is crucial to creating a Connector that works for Lafayette residents and all who travel along the corridor.
