WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — A $1.3 million effort to renovate West Lafayette's roads is coming to an end this week.

The Board of Works approved the Community Crossing Project this past spring. Thanks to the project, people in the area will notice new sidewalks and resurfaced roads.

City engineers also made stormwater improvements. Finished updates can be seen near the Wabash Shores neighborhood. Changes also took place near the Grant and Salisbury streets intersection.

"It's going to be real enjoyable for the community, there are complete sidewalks, where before there wasn't, there's no more trip hazards in there. We've widened everything to ADA compliant five-foot sidewalks," said West Lafayette City Engineer Ed Garrison.

Some roads still need to be paved, including Indian Trail, Knox and Pawnee drives and Navajo and Chippewa streets.

"It's nice, and then we'll start targeting the next project. It's how things keep moving along," said Garrison.
