LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — After four years of construction, the City of Lafayette is celebrating the completion of the Restore Sagamore Project Thursday.

Since 2014, the city has worked to restore Sagamore Parkway between Greenbush and Main Streets. Improvements have taken place in three phases, including updated intersections, traffic signals and new pavement.

The purpose was to revitalize the road, and the area around it, to benefit both drivers and pedestrians. One of the goals engineers had was to attract business to this area which has already started to happen.

A few small projects remain including replacing areas of sidewalk, planting trees and turning on decorative lights, but the major work is complete.

"You won't see any asphalt work, even major concrete work on Sagamore Parkway for many years to come," said City Engineer Jeromy  Grenard.

Thursday, engineers are celebrating the completion of the $35 million project with an open party. It starts at 2 p.m. at DeFouw Automotive between South and Kossuth Streets.
