The Lafayette Urban Renewal Authority (LURA) is pleased to announce the start of the Public Road Front Porch Streetscape Construction Project. This Old Town enhancement will create a pedestrian-friendly area along the east side of Public Road between Geneseo and Cleveland Streets. The Front Porch area will be a welcoming public setting with outdoor seating and enhanced landscape plantings, and will provide a charming destination for those enjoying Old Town businesses and amenities.
Work will begin on Tuesday, September 4, and is expected to continue through the middle of November. This project includes the replacement of concrete and landscaping on the east side of Public Road between the blocks of Geneseo and Cleveland Streets. Sidewalks in this area will be closed during construction. All businesses will remain open during construction.
We appreciate your patience during the construction period and thank you in advance for safely avoiding the active work zones.
