New portion of State Street opening up to two-way traffic

The flow of traffic on State Street is changing once again.

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The flow of traffic on State Street is changing once again. A portion of the road is reopening to two-way traffic.
The change will impact those who travel between U.S. 231 and Airport Road. The shift is expected to happen Wednesday.
"It's getting there," said City Engineer Ed Garrison. "We've got about one more month and they're going to be getting everything opened back up. So, it's moving quick."

Westbound traffic will shift to the newly constructed southern half of the lanes on State Street. The new lanes will reopen to two-way traffic on or after Nov. 2.

Also, some painting needs to be completed on the road. It all depends on weather conditions in West Lafayette this week.
"It's fun, it's exciting," Garrison said. "It's very busy, very fast paced and we're happy to get through it."
Construction crews have until the end of November to reopen State Street. You should be able to drive from U.S. 231 to Tapawingo Drive by Nov. 30.
