WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The City of West Lafayette is preparing to repave the Bar Barry Heights neighborhood. They plan to start early next week.
This resurfacing will finish the nearly $320,000 project. The city completed the first half of the neighborhood last summer.
This year the state awarded West Lafayette nearly $160,000 towards repaving this area.
Bar Barry Heights' residents say this will be nice for their neighborhood.
“It's a heavy traffic area and a lot of children are in the area playing also and I think it'll be a lot safer for them along with those that drive it,” said Clarice Dexter.
“Right here on this chunk of my street I think we're okay but I'm sure there are some areas that really do need it,” said Laura Marie Williams.
Dexter said despite her constant travel, she loves her neighborhood and her city.
“I can see the deterioration and I can also see the improvement and I think West Lafayette is growing all the time and every time I come back, there's something new in the area,” said Dexter.
The project is set to be finished before the fall.
