Weekly Update 6/9/20

Work continues for Phase 3 of the Streetscapes project for Downtown Lafayette. Last week, (June 1st -5th) crews began removing old sidewalk, curb, and drive approaches along N. 10th St. from Ferry St. to Main St. while installing safe temporary stone access points for residents and businesses. The under-drain installation has been completed, and Houston Electric has finished installing an electrical conduit for improved street lighting and tree outlet receptacles! With the mention of trees, crews placed planting soil for trees that will be planted along N. 10th St. between Ferry St. and Main St. Coming up this week, (June 8th – 12th) is the continuation of the old sidewalk and curb removal, followed by the start of concrete work for the curb and gutters. Once those steps are finished, crews will begin the framing process for the updated sidewalk along N. 10th St.!
