Lane Closures Happening for Certain Lafayette Parish Schools as Part of Louisiana DOTD Safety Project

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (LADOTD) is on a mission to make traveling around schools as safe as possible.

The DOTD’s Safe Routes to School project installs new roadway safety enhancements including sidewalks, driveways, handicap ramps, grading, and signage along various routes near schools across Louisiana. For the rest of the year, this project will concentrate on five schools in Lafayette Parish.

Workers will be out at these selected schools Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. each day, weather permitting. DOTD crews will be conducting intermittent lane closures so drivers should expect some delays so your patience and cautious driving through the work areas are appreciated. It’s estimated the project will be completed in December 2023.

The cost of putting the project into action – $1,559,931.10.

Below are the schools that will receive DOTD attention, with the affected roads for each school. These include schools in Lafayette, Duson, and Youngsville.
