This has been the year of road construction in Lafayette, especially over the summer, as project after project has popped up.

Fortunately, when the projects are done, they leave that area in much better shape for drivers that are passing through and drivers who live in that area.

One project happening now that is causing some inconvenience is the current partial closing of the intersection of E. Broussard Road and Johnston Street. Drivers can continue through the intersection from one side of the Johnston Street onto the other, but they have to detour if they want to cross over from E. Broussard over to W. Broussard and vice versa.

Again, an inconvenience now but the area really needed attention and people traveling through that area on a regular basis will benefit from the construction.

There are a couple of road construction projects beginning today in Lafayette that you need to be aware of.
