LAFAYETTE, La. - The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD), along with Lafayette Consolidated Government, announce that beginning Monday, October 24, the water level will be lowered in the detention pond located along Camellia Boulevard near Cornelius Drive in order to conduct work related to the Verot School Road widening project. Work will include the installation of a storm drain system in the Verot School Road / Camellia Boulevard area.

Pumps will remain on site to maintain the needed elevation. As a result, certain areas around the detention pond may have limited access.

This work is estimated to take place for approximately four weeks.

DOTD apologizes for any inconvenience to the public.

The project will reconstruct a 3.19-mile section of La. 339 (Verot School Road) from Vincent Road to Pinhook Road and widen the mostly two-lane road to four lanes with a median. Work began in November 2015 and is estimated for completion February 2018.
