BROUSSARD, La. (AP) - State officials have announced plans to widen about 2 miles of U.S. Highway 90 between Albertsons Parkway and Ambassador Caffery Parkway in Lafayette Parish.
The work will extend a project completed last month that widened 7 miles of U.S. 90 from four to six lanes, beginning at Pinhook Road in Lafayette and stretching south to Broussard.
Department of Transportation and Development spokeswoman Jodi Conachen says the estimated $90 to $110 million price tag for the new project includes frontage roads and widening the La. Highway 182 overpass.
The project is not expected to be complete until 2017.
