Drainage improvements on Joli Road in the Carencro area are going to cause a road closure this week. Joli Road was resurfaced in mid-May, Chad Nepveaux, Director of Public Works, announced today,
“Joli Road between Cankton Road and Mardi Gras Road will be closed from Thursday, June 18th, 2020 at 7:00 am thru Friday, June 19th, 2020 at 5:00 pm. The closure is necessary for drainage improvements. Detour routes will be available. Local access will be maintained.”
In recent years, Joli Road has been a poster project for the need for resurfacing of roads in Lafayette Parish. Some residents have feared that some of their vehicles would be damaged because of the condition of the road. Work began in May on the project as there are several projects occurring in the northern part of Lafayette Parish and inside the city of Carencro.
