The Lafayette Police Department is asking residents to remain patient and courteous on the roadways as utility crews continue to restore power throughout the city.

Police say that there are several major intersections throughout the city that still do not have functioning traffic lights.

Police officers will be posted at many of these intersections to assist motorists.

The department is asking drivers to be aware and obey additional traffic control devices such as traffic cones, sign boards, and barricades.

"Just a reminder when approaching an intersection that does not have power that intersection should be navigated as a 4-way stop," police say.

Crews will be working to get those intersections back functional by the end of the day on Monday, October 12.

Here's a handy dandy diagram from DOTD that explains how four-way stops work.
