Traffic Closures Set for These Lafayette Intersections, Construction to Continue for I-10 Overpass Emergency Repair
LAFAYETTE, La. (KPEL News) - It's another busy week for traffic construction in Lafayette as the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development will continue a couple of projects that will most certainly affect the commute for many drivers, both locally and from out-of-town.
Phase Two Closures Set to Resume for I-10 Overpass Emergency Repair
In January, Louisiana DOTD officials announced a plan to repair the damage caused by a truck carrying an excavator at the Interstate 10 overpass at Interstate 49 in Lafayette.
This first phase of work began January 20-22 as I-49 north was closed throughout that weekend as DOTD workers began the repairs.
Well, Phase Two begins today (March 29), DOTD workers will close down I-49 northbound at the I-10 overpass once again - this time from 8:00 p.m. until 5:00 a.m.
Then, on Thursday (March 30), DOTD workers will close I-10 eastbound and I-49 northbound at the interchange from 8:00 p.m. until 5:00 a.m.
Signal Upgrades Happening at 2 Lafayette Intersections
Also in January, DOTD workers began a series of traffic signal upgrades in the Hub City.
There are a couple of intersections across the Hub City that will have intermittent lane closures while DOTD crews perform these upgrades. These intermittent lane closures will last for 2-hour periods. The roads will be open to regular traffic and there will be no detours but you can expect delays. This work is weather permitting.
