If you travel Interstate 49 in upper Lafayette today between 8:30 and 3:30 expect some slow downs and extra congestion on the roadway again today.  The lane closures (weather permitting) will affect the northbound portion of the roadway between the Hector Connely interchange and the interchange with La. 182.

The lane closures are being done so that crews might make necessary repairs to the roadway. The purpose of this work is to cut bumps on the roadway making your drive a lot smoother. Remember this schedule is subject to weather permitting so make sure you tune in to 97.3 The Dawg for the latest traffic updates.  Now would be a good time to be thinking of an alternate route to ease your stress level. 97.3 The Dawg encourages you to please reduce your speed in work zone areas not only for your safety but for the safety of our highway workers.
