Lafayette Police will be escorting large pieces of heavy equipment through the city, a move that is expected to take several hours.

The escort will begin at Ambassador Caffery Parkway and I-10. It will then roll to Ambassador Caffery to Johnston Street, then travel south on Johnston Street to East Broussard Road. The escort will end on East Broussard Road at the Vermilion River.

Intersections will be shutdown as the equipment slowly maneuvers through them. Drivers should expect delays.
