Lafayette Street Temporarily One-Way

Lafayette Street Temporarily Converted to One-way

To safely accommodate nearby construction of a new apartment building, Lafayette Street has temporarily become a one-way street, going east.

This condition is expected to last about eight months. A simple detour marked with on-road signage will guide drivers who previously traveled west on Lafayette Street.

Please see directly below for a graphic showing the temporary one-way conversion of Lafayette Street, along with the detour for drivers who previously used Lafayette to travel west.
