LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Drivers will no longer be able to take a popular traveled shortcut to North Ninth Street in Lafayette starting next week.
Construction will begin Monday at INOK Investments' parking lot at U.S. 52 and Duncan Road.
INOK, which stands for Indiana-Oklahoma, is a real estate investment company.
The company is building a 14,000 square-foot addition to one of the campus' buildings to accommodate the growth of one of their tenants, ACell.
"With the addition of the building, that will be a permanent change,” INOK Co-owner Jerry Brand said. “So there will be no way to go through this location so we just want to be pro-active and let the public know."
Brand said ACell's expansion could bring up to nearly 100 new jobs to the area by 2016.
It was a packed house for the pay-off of a project two years in the making.
The man charged in connection with the death of a Flora woman has been cleared, more than six years after her death and two years after he was charged.
It's been nearly a month since a tornado damaged Southwestern Middle School and Mintonye Elementary School, giving faculty the task of helping students transition to their new surroundings.
