WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Changes are coming to Brown Street in West Lafayette.
It's in an effort to make businesses along State Street more accessible.
Design work is set to begin on the redevelopment of Brown Street.
It will take place from Roebuck to the dead end where Brown once connected to River Road.
City Engineer Ed Garrison said the road will be reshaped to tie in with Howard Street.
He said the goal is to clear up the confusion for drivers.
"This first phase is basically to keep that cut through traffic from getting to the end of the road and finding out they can't get through anywhere and either trespass on private property to try to find another way out," Garrison said.
Garrison said the goal is to accept a bid by July, and work should begin soon after.
