TRAFFIC NOTICE: Starting January 2019 the I-210 Bridge will be undergoing a complete retrofit of its upper deck and will cause significant delays coming into Lake Charles. The bridge will be open for travelers coming into Lake Charles. Please be aware of local traffic notifications and plan ahead for excessive delays entering Lake Charles during these times.
PARKING NOTICE: 2019 will be the last year a secondary event will be taking place during our show. Parking will be slightly affected. All attendees are asked to please park on the south side of the Civic Center.
We're really excited for CyPhaCon this year, and hope that you are too!
