Lafayette Street to close Saturday (between Second and Third Streets)


Mayor Lee Posey announces that Lafayette Street between Second Street and Third Street will be closed to all traffic Saturday, April 27 for removal of the existing base and asphalt surfacing and placement of new crushed stone base.

Once the new base course is in place, the street will be re-opened to traffic until such time as placement of the new asphalt surfacing can be scheduled.

During this closure, traffic may detour around the work site via the adjacent network of City streets. When traveling near the work zone, motorists are advised to exercise caution and to observe all warning signs and flagger instructions.

For questions relative to this temporary closure, please call the Mayor’s office at (318) 352-2772.
