LAFAYETTE, La. - The general public is invited to attend the N. University Underpass revitalization project on September 9 at 10 am. The project consists of pressure washing, sealing and painting the walls of the underpass. As a welcome to motorists entering the city, "Bienvenue" will be painted on the structure.

"The University Corridor is a crucial gateway to our community and is worthy of reinvestment," said Lafayette Mayor-President Joel Robideaux. "It is my hope that with renewed focus, we can begin the process of returning this area to its former cultural, social and economic status for those who live, work and travel along the corridor."

The revitalization project is expected to take 60 working days with weather permitting. Work will take place at night and will not affect daytime traffic routes. Lane closures will last from 8 p.m. until 6 a.m. until the project's completion. Paragon Construction Services of America is the contractor that is performing the underpass revitalization work. The project is expected to be completed in November.

Parking:

Those wishing to participate should park on Latiolais Street (side street near O'Reily's Auto Parts.)
