People in Lafayette will have another route to travel to get to their destination. Thursday was the ribbon cutting for the new Louisiana Avenue extension.
This phase of the project goes about 500 feet past Butcher Switch Road and the next phase will bring us all the way to Gloria Switch Road. In the 1995 elections for the consolidated government, Louisiana Avenue was one of the priorities that the chamber of commerce had made.
The other two were the Camellia Bridge and the bridge at South College and Pinhook, which has not been done yet.
