The light at the end of the tunnel is becoming more and more visible.

For residents living off Dulles Drive in Lafayette, driving in and out of their homes has been an inconvenience. Without access to Dulles Drive from Ambassador Caffery - and vice versa - motorists have had to find alternative ways to get to their homes.

Well, that has now changed.

Dulles Drive between Ambassador Caffery Parkway and N. Domingue Road has been reopened as sidewalks, lighting, and a new roundabout at N. Domingue have been added to this stretch of Dulles.

Turning lanes are still being added on Dulles Drive so the road - while it has been widened - will remain striped as a two-lane road until other parts of the project are completed.

One of the other parts is Dulles between Westgate Road and N. Domingue Road, which remains closed.

Also, as part of the Dulles Drive Widening Project, a portion of the northbound outside lane of Ambassador Caffery Parkway near the Dulles Drive intersection is still closed for approximately two months, weather permitting.

Traffic has been backing up, as expected, during peak traffic times. As a reminders, it is best if you use alternate routes while construction continues.
