Roadwork begins at Lake Street and Prien Lake Road

The following information is from a news release from the City of Lake Charles.

On Monday, the City of Lake Charles began improvements to the intersection of Lake St. and Prien Lake Rd.

The first phase is construction of a new southbound right turning lane on Lake St. between Lafitte St. and Prien Lake Rd.

The project will require the temporary closure of the west, southbound lane during business hours, and motorists are encouraged to seek alternate routes.  

The work is scheduled to conclude in March.

When completed, the improvements will provide for more efficient traffic flow through the intersection.
