Lafayette Consolidate Government announced Wednesday that three more SafeLight intersections are under construction and expected to be activated within the next two months. The red-light cameras will be located at Congress/Guilbeau, Camellia/Settlers Trace and Camellia/Kaliste Saloom.
Tony Tramel, LCG’s director of traffic and transportation, says the exact dates and times the cameras will be activated will be announced soon. The three new locations will bring to a dozen the number of intersections in Lafayette where traffic laws are electronically enforced. A total of 29 intersections with traffic signals among 188 maintained by LCG are slated to be part of the SafeLight program.
David Calhoun and Elizabeth “EB” Brooks are the first two employees of Lafayette Central Park Inc., the nonprofit charged with turning Lafayette Consolidated Government’s 100-acre Johnston Street Horse Farm property into a passive public park. Calhoun was named executive director, and Brooks is director of planning and design.
There will soon be a whole lot of shakin’ going on at Benny’s Sportshack Supplement Depot, a new concept by Opelousas native Benny Nele. Located at 2002 Johnston St., the supplement shop, smoothie bar and café, featuring hot off the press paninis and wraps, plans to open in late May.
