Lemoine Celebrates Transportation Center Groundbreaking

The final phase of the Rosa Parks Transportation Center held its groundbreaking ceremonies on Tuesday, January 19, in downtown Lafayette.  The two-story, 41,000-square-foot facility will house the U.S. Postal Service and the City-Parish Traffic and Transportation Department.  The project is expected to take about 18 months to complete at a cost of about $8.1 million, 85% of which came from federal dollars.  Lafayette City-Parish President Joey Durel said the project will serve as “a continuation of the redevelopment of downtown Lafayette.”  The old 8,000-square-foot building, which houses the downtown post office and portions of the traffic department, will be demolished once the new facility is completed.  The center will be part of a complex that already includes a train depot and a city bus station that opened in 2004.
