As we close out the last half of the month of June, there are some important traffic closures you need to know about, particularly on Ambassador Caffery Parkway and Interstate 10.

Ambassador Caffery Construction Near Target

This is a project that began near the beginning of 2022 as DOTD crews have been working on various sidewalk repairs along with concrete pavement patching as they have been repairing the inside and outside lanes between Old Camp Road to the Vermilion River and from Broadmoor Boulevard (just past the Vermilion River) to Kaliste Saloom Road.

Happening from 8 PM Friday until 6 AM Monday, the inside travel lane of Ambassador Caffery northbound from Kaliste Saloom to the Vermilion River Bridge will be closed.

No detour will be necessary but you can expect Ambassador Caffery in that area to have heavy traffic that could take you a considerable while to get through. A lot of work has been getting done on the weekends for this project, which means crews have been working night and day during those time periods.

The overall project is slated to be completed in Early Summer 2022.
