WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — A major portion of the State Street Redevelopment project should be open by the end of the day on Thursday.

Crews first closed State State from University Street to Airport Road in April. Soon the road is expected to reopen and allow drivers to cruise from U.S. 231 to Tapawingo Drive.

Some of the remaining work includes landscaping around the road. Crews need to finish planting trees and shrubs. There is also some sidewalk and bike path work that needs to be done. Project Engineer Ed Garrison said the construction is helping to update the city.

"It's been a year of 2.2 miles of construction," said Garrison. "It's been a long year, but we're there, we're on budget, we're on time, and we're looking to start it up again next year."

Crews will start prepping for the next phase of the State Street Redevelopment Project as early as December. There are about three miles of road around campus being updated.

Drivers should notice the next phase of the State Street project happening next year in March. Work is being done on Stadium Avenue in between Northwestern Avenue all the way to McCormick Road. McCormick Road is being resurfaced and a roundabout is being installed.

There will also be a new connection between Harrison and Williams Streets on the south end of campus.
