LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- The city is working to repair a Lafayette neighborhood's aging infrastructure.

A project has been approved to replace an old water main in the Vinton Neighborhood.

It's located between Greenbush and Underwood Streets, east of Elmwood Avenue.

Water Works Superintendent Kerry Smith said the line breaks regularly. Replacing it won't make a huge difference for residents, but it will save the city from having to make constant repairs.

"People won't notice anything different," he explained. "Their water pressure will be the same, delivered to their homes. Their water quality will be the same. This just keeps the aging infrastructure from being a problem."

Smith said work should begin sometime this spring and wrap up in August. He said work on other areas in the Vinton Neighborhood will happen in the near future.
