Emergency Room Route - Girard Park Drive Closure
The closure of Girard Park Drive June 30-July 3 between Pasa Place and Hospital Drive could alter some traffic routes to Lafayette General Medical Center’s Emergency Room during workday hours. The hospital’s ER corridor is accessed off of Hospital Drive. Drivers on South College Road will not have access to Hospital Drive except from Coolidge Street from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily staring Monday, June 30, through Thursday, July 3.
Traffic leaving Girard Park on Girard Park Drive will be detoured onto Hospital Drive to reach South College Road. Access to Hospital Drive from Coolidge Street in either direction is unaffected, although traffic volume could be higher than normal during working hours.
Tom Carroll, Director of Public Works for the Lafayette Department of Public Works, says the road closure is due to drainage infrastructure work being performed. Detour routes will be marked for the duration of the closure.
