For nearly two months, there have been lane closures on Ambassador Caffery Parkway near the Dulles Drive intersection as crews have been making improvements as part of the Dulles Drive widening project.
Unfortunately, these necessary lane closures have caused daily traffic buildups, they've made it harder for residents to get to their homes, and have been a source of worry for businesses concerned about losing customers because of the construction.
Well, residents, business owners, and drivers can now rejoice!

Lafayette Consolidated Government officials have announced that ALL LANES of Ambassador Caffery near Dulles Drive are NOW OPEN. This has not been the case since the project began on April 25.

As part of the Dulles Drive Widening Project, there has been quite a bit of work done in the area over the last couple of months.

Sidewalks, lighting, and a new roundabout at N. Domingue has been added the stretch of Dulles Drive between Ambassador and N. Domingue Road.

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.
