LAFAYETTE, La. (KPEL News) — Earlier this week, officials with the Louisiana DOTD announced a plan to repair the damage caused by a truck with a backhoe at the Interstate 10 overpass at Interstate 49 in Lafayette.
This first phase of work is expected to occur Jan. 20-22 (Friday through Sunday) as I-49 North will be closed throughout the weekend to allow repairs to begin.
Well, starting Monday, there’s construction just a few miles down I-10. DOTD officials say slow operation on the inside and outside lanes of I-10 westbound and eastbound from mile marker 108 (1 mile before the Breaux Bridge exit) to mile marker 115 (LA 347, Cecilia, Henderson) as Workers will be installing rumble strips during the day.
Work will take place on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., weather permitting.
The construction work is being carried out with slow driving on one lane at a time, which can lead to delays for drivers.
Alternating lane closures on Cameron Street for the next 2 months
Also starting Monday, there will be night-time lane closures on US 90 (Cameron Street) between Andres Street and Wilfred Road. These closures will be eastbound and westbound and will last through Friday, March 17, as workers will conduct asphalt overlay and marking work.
These lane closures will take place at the following times:
• Sunday – Thursday: 7:00 p.m. – 6:00 a.m
• Friday – Saturday: 19:00 – 08:00
There will be no detour route as the road is open to regular traffic, with a 14-foot lane restriction for oversized loads traveling through the work zone during lane closure hours. Emergency vehicles have access to the area but delays may occur.

The Story Behind Lafayette Street Names
We drive them every day. Some are smoother than others. Some we use more often than others. Some start, end and/or change names randomly. These are the streets of Lafayette. The names behind many of these streets have an interesting history. We take a look at where these names came from and the impact their namesakes had on the city and community.
