LAFAYETTE — The intersection of Kaliste Saloom Road and LA 733 (E. Broussard Road) will be closed, beginning Monday at 9:00 a.m., until Monday, March 9, weather permitting.

According to DOTD, the Kaliste Saloom Road and W Broussard Road T-intersection will be moved east of its current location; drivers at that intersection will make an all-way stop.

Emergency vehicles will have access to the area.

Drivers should expect traffic delays and are encouraged to take an alternative route for the next one to two months until the intersection of Kaliste Saloom and E. Broussard is reopened.

DOTD appreciates your patience and is reminding the public to drive with caution and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment.
