Lafayette Consolidated Government on Tuesday provided an update on the Kaliste Saloom road widening project.

The segment from E. Broussard Road to Grand Pointe Apartments (Phase 3-A) is 85 percent 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 percent complete.

From Grande Pointe Apartments to Ambassador Caffery (Phase 3-B), on the west side of the roadway, 95 percent of drainage work and 25 percent of the roadway base, and 5 percent of the concrete pavement have been completed.

A significant traffic shift on Kaliste Saloom is anticipated in the very near future to complete the construction of the roundabout, LCG added. The Department of Transportation and Development has approved the traffic plan, and further information will be released once the date of the shift is scheduled.
