LAFAYETTE — As of noon, Lafayette Public Works closed these roads due to heavy rains and street flooding issues:

Taft at Vermilion

  • Rue Fosse
  • Ambassador at Dulles
  • Ambassador from Johnston to Eraste Landry.

Public works crews are currently working to alleviate blockages and setting out barricades, said Kevin Blanchard, Lafayette Consolidated Government’s chief development officer in a news release.

“We are assessing flooding and dispatching crews accordingly. Drivers are asked to be careful of high water,” Blanchard said.
