More frustration is expected as DOTD prepares the next step in widening Verot School Rd.
Although the Rue Louis XIV intersection recently opened up to traffic, they will shut down the Camellia Blvd intersection within the next week.
Lafayette District Engineer Bill Oliver says it will be closed for a month.
“We’re putting in asphalt and preparing some intersections to switch traffic to the outside lanes from Rue Louis to Failla. They wont be able to cross or turn left so they really need to plan their trips when they’re going in there.” he said.
The project isn’t expected to be done until early 2019.
