I was on Evangeline Thruway recently. I drove into town from I-10. After you pass the Welcome Center near Home Depot and Walmart, it just looks disgusting until you get to about Pinhook. I don't believe this entrance to our city is an accurate representation of Lafayette.
Because of necessary deck and barrier rail repairs, DOTD officials are performing alternating lane and shoulder closures IN BOTH DIRECTIONS from MM 129.0 (Whiskey Bay) and MM 117.4 (between Cecilia/Henderson & Butte La Rose exits).
