WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Several projects will soon begin around the new West Lafayette Intermediate School.

The goal is to make the area safer for students. Part of the project includes resurfacing a portion of Lindberg Road. The lining of the road will also be re-adjusted to add a left turn lane from Lindberg onto Salisbury.

Traffic signals will be added to the dedicated left turn lane on southbound Salisbury to turn onto Lindberg. This will make driving smoother for buses and parents coming in and out of the school.

The roads will also be re-marked. City Engineer Ed Garrison said the area will be safer for both drivers and walkers.

"We are also going to be setting up our school zones and flashing lights and everything else that is currently not there, so just updating everything so that once the school is done, everything around it is done as well," said Garrison.

Crosswalks will also be added across Lindberg on Indian Trail and another across Salisbury at Elm Street. All work is scheduled to be finished by October.
