The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development is alerting Lafayette motorists that work crews will be present on Johnston Street for the majority of the day Thursday.

DOTD officials are reporting "a slow moving operation" will take place on Johnston Street from Cajundome Bouevard to Ambassador Caffery Parkway in both the north- and southbound lanes from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., weather permitting.

DOTD spokesman Deidre Druilhet tells Kpel's news department that crews will be removing bumps from several sections of Johnston Street to provide a smoother ride for motorists.

The roadway will be open to regular traffic with no restrictions to oversized loads passing through the work zone.

Please drive with caution through the work zones, and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment.
