Description: Widening will take place on Lafayette Street from St Anne’s Church to the clock roundabout at Iberia St.
Lafayette Street will have lane closures daily to perform said work. Vehicles are encouraged to find alternative routes to avoid delays.
As part of the streetscape project in the heart of our city it was widely agreed that Lafayette Street should be widened. The curbing on the west side of Lafayette Street will be removed and replaced approximately 18 inches into the landscape beds.
Overall this project is moving along great, on schedule, with an anticipated completion date prior to the end of this year. Still expected is the installation of the uniform street lighting, road overlays on Church, Lafayette, & School Streets, & landscaping. Nearing completion is the Church Street drainage improvements, sewer force main upgrade, and the new concrete angled and parallel parking stalls.
