Get ready for the latest ‘new and improved’ traffic changes. As part of the U.S. 90 widening project, from Pinhook to Broussard, safety measures known as J-turns will be constructed along U.S. 90 between Pinhook Road and Albertson’s Parkway. Watch the video below to see how they work then tell us what you think:

The J-turn design will “safely and efficiently manage traffic and eliminate left-turn and through movements from side roads and driveways into crossovers,” according to DOTD. All vehicles will be forced to turn right and then U-turn at a median opening down the road. Additionally, this project will widen Highway 90 from four lanes to six lanes from Pinhook Road to Broussard. Louisiana DOTD will conduct an open-house style public meeting to provide information on the current U.S. 90 J-turn projects on Wednesday, May 30, 2012, from 5:30 p.m. until 7 p.m. at the Louisiana National Guard located at 1806 Surrey Street in Lafayette. DOTD will provide information and answer questions on the overall U.S. 90 widening project, from Pinhook to Broussard, future J-turn projects, I-49 South, the Scott Roundabout and other district projects. Approximately 50,000 drivers a day travel on this portion of U.S. 90. Work on this 7.19-mile project began in late April 2010 and should be completed by fall 2012.
