LAFAYETTE (AP) — Motorists traveling on U.S. Highway 90 who have endured delays for the more than a year due to construction can look forward to relief soon as two projects are expected to wrap up in December.
In Lafayette Parish, Deidra Druilhet, a spokesman for the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development, says J turns are being constructed from the Billeaud overpass near Albertson Parkway to Wall Road in Youngsville.
Druilhet said the $4.8 million project, a mix of state and federal funding, is expected to ease congestion and prevent deadly T-bone crashes along the busy highway.
She says construction started in 2012 and should be completed in December.
The second project that should wrap up in December is the construction of frontage roads along U.S. 90 in Iberia Parish.
