LCG officials and staff, area residents and business operators, as well as members of the media and general public are invited to attend.

 Additional Details:

 The N. University Underpass revitalization project will begin on September 9. This 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.

 Early in his administration, Lafayette Mayor-President Joel Robideaux identified the University Avenue corridor as a priority project and has been working towards its revitalization. “The University Corridor is a crucial gateway to our community and is worthy of reinvestment. 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 competition. Paragon Construction Services of America is the contractor that is performing the underpass revitalization work. The project is expected to be completed in November.

Please park on Latiolais Street (side street near O’Reilly’s Auto Parts.)
