LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — A $3.4 million dollar street project is set to start at the end of this month.
Crews will begin re-doing Valley Street in Lafayette on April 30. The project will address several issues on the long stretch of road.
One problem it will fix is frequent flooding that occurs on the road. That will be reversed by replacing water mains. Other parts of the project are storm water detention, storm water conveyance and sanitary sewer rehabilitation.
The final phase will be reconstruction of the road.
In total, it will take about 7 months to complete, work is expected to be done by December of this year.
Lafayette Renew Superintendent Brad Talley said the project has been a long time coming.
"It's a pretty big project, it will be a lot going on in that area...this is one that has been on the list for a while and you know we are glad to finally be able to address it," said Talley.
