BROUSSARD, La. - DOTD announces that a traffic shift is planned for U.S. 90 northbound as part of the $136 million Ambassador Caffery Interchange project.

On Thursday, February 22, 2024 beginning at 8 p.m. construction crews are scheduled to transition U.S. 90 northbound mainline traffic entirely to a stretch of new frontage road.

U.S. 90 northbound drivers will be shifted onto the new northbound frontage road beginning approximately 0.4 miles south of Ambassador Caffery and then shifted back onto U.S. 90 northbound approximately 0.3 miles south of the BNSF railroad overpass.

The new frontage road will accommodate two lanes of traffic in the northbound direction. Additionally, a signal light has been installed at the intersection of the new frontage road with Ambassador Caffery Parkway/Corne Road to accommodate through and left-turning traffic.

The temporary traffic shift is necessary to allow crews to begin widening the existing mainline of U.S. 90 northbound and constructing the new overpass. The traffic shift will be in place until the project is nearly complete.

The Ambassador Caffery Interchange construction project is estimated for completion by spring 2026.
