WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The final phase of the West Lafayette State Street project begins in March.
The city is held two public information meetings on Thursday to explain what work is planned. Two key parts of the phase are the closure of Stadium Avenue from Northwestern to McCormick Road. And the closure of Williams Street in order to connect it with Harrison Street. In these meetings, people are able to meet with city employees and questions.
Director of Development Erik Carlson said drivers need to brace for another summer of construction.
"We want to make sure that we are doing everything we can to get the word out to the public about the type od work that going to be going on in 2018 and remind them why this work is going on in the first place," Carlson said. "I've joked that 2018 is the year we fight branding because very little, if any, of this work is actually going to happen on State Street. But it's all for State Street. We're creating ways to get around the city, if your aim is to get around the city."
The State Street project is slated to be finished by the end of 2018
