Drivers can now take a service road off I-10 to get to Duson.
Mayor Johnny Thibodeaux cut the ribbon for the road today and says businesses are already calling about development in the area.
He’s optimistic that the Service Road will be beneficial for more than just Duson.
“Hopefully with this road project, it’s going to be a big increase, not only for Lafayette Parish but for Acadia Parish this land is in,” Thibodeaux. “But it’s going to be a big boost for the state of Louisiana as well.”
