InfrastructureEdit

Transportation

Route Nationale 1 passes through town along a highway, with two major shopping districts throughout the section. This stretch of Route 1, though not a full controlled access highway, is a major commuter route out of Port-au-Prince, heading towards the interchange to Arcahaie. Route 1 through Cabaret has known for its abundance of economic generators such as mills and cement plants, and also sugar refineries. The route is also shares a junction with Route Departmentale 114, which passes through Titanyen after leaving Route 1 to head northward into Des Orangers. Entrée Moulins d'Haiti intersects with Route 1 as well, in the southern end of town at Carrefour Minoterie. This road passes through the shoreside community of Lafiteau, crossing the mills and abutting the waterfront to join Route de Minoterie.
