LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Part of a worn down Lafayette road is getting replaced.

Work will happen on Twykenham Boulevard between South 9th Street and Poland Hill Road. That's about a half mile stretch on the city's south side.

Right now, the road is cracking and concrete is breaking down.

INDOT will pay for 80 percent of the $4.1 million project, and the city will cover the rest. 

During the reconstruction, crews will add a pedestrian trail.

City engineer Jeromy Grenard said it's a much needed improvement.

"It was built more to subdivision standards than a city standard," explained. "It's concrete on dirt. It just hasn't held up to the traffic."

Work should start in the early spring of 2020 and wrap up that fall.

There will be detours once work starts. The city will have those ready for drivers closer to the start of the project.
