The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) announces that beginning Monday, October 30, 2017, construction will begin on a $1.7 million project to construct a roundabout at the intersection of LA 342 (Ridge Road) and LA 724 (South Fieldspan Road), in Lafayette Parish.

The work is estimated to take place daily from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., weather permitting.

The road will be open to regular traffic with a 12-foot lane restriction on oversized loads passing through the work zone.

Roundabouts are one-way, circular intersections designed to improve safety and efficiency for motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians. Roundabouts reduce crashes by decreasing stop-and-go traffic.

The project is estimated for completion in summer of 2018.

DOTD appreciates your patience and reminds you to please drive with caution through the construction site and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment.
