The city of Lafayette will close sections of South Street on both sides of the Parkway starting April 2nd to expand it.

Rachel Scott works at Beltone and said she's already warning her customers about the upcoming closure.

"As I schedule appointments, telling people what the plans are for entering and exiting our parking lot," Scott said.

The closure will start at Earl Avenue, stop at Sagamore Parkway and continue on the other side of Sagamore. The closure will stretch all the way to the Post Office.

Lafayette City Engineer Jeremy Grenard said they will help provide directions for customers to eliminate confusion. 

"We'll be giving them access to other driveways off Sagamore Parkway," Grenard said. "We will then put signs out that lets people know how you get to that particular business."

Scott said she thinks the road construction will bring great benefits. 
"It is difficult...but it could be good results," Scott said.
