Settlers Trace travel nightmare


Chaotic is the word many motorists are using to describe the ongoing road project on Settlers Trace Boulevard in Lafayette. 

What's being called a rehabilitation project began January 14th. Portions of Settlers Trace from Camellia to Ambassador Caffrey are closed off to traffic. Detours have been made available. But as to what's causing the fourteen year old road to need such extensive repairs is now leading to an investigation.

Mitch Wyble with LCG public works says they do know it's a joint problem. But as to why the joints need replacing is what his team of experts is investigating while they repair. Wyble says they hope to figure it out so other roads won't deal with the same problems.

The Settlers Trace project is in phase two of five. The complete project should be wrapped up by April. But that won't be the end of the travel nightmare, Camellia Boulevard is next to be repaired.
