Posted at 1:37 PM, May 14, 2020

LAFAYETTE, La. — The Lafayette Consolidated Government announced on Thursday that improvements to Kaliste Saloom Road are progressing.

According to a release from LCG, the 2.2-mile project, when complete, will widen 2.2 miles from Kaliste Saloom Road to E. Broussard Road to five lanes, with a center turn lane, sidewalks and a roundabout at E. Broussard Road near Cue Road.

LCG states the segment from E. Broussard Road to Grande Pointe Apartments, which it refers to as Phase 3-A, is approximately 70% complete, which includes pavement construction at the intersection north of the bridge at Grand Pointe Apartments on Kaliste Saloom Road; repaving a portion of “old” Kaliste Saloom Road; and a newly constructed bridge over the Isaac Verot Coulee.

The multi-lane roundabout is approximately 50% complete.

According to LCG, the segment from Grande Pointe Apartments to Ambassador Caffery, which it refers to as Phase 3-B, on the west side of the roadway has completed 55% of drainage work and 25% of the roadway base.

LCG says the contractor will begin laying concrete on that segment in approximately two weeks.
