LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- A downtown Lafayette road construction project is back in progress.

Pervious pavers are being placed on North Street from 3rd to 7th streets to resemble the road from 7th to Eerie streets.

7th to Eerie streets was completed about three years ago.

Only the stretch from 3rd to 4th is currently being worked on.

Some of the historical bricks that are used in the roads now will be used in the new project.

Lafayette Mayor Tony Roswarski says this project is considered "green infrastructure."

One of its goals is to try to rid the use of combined sewer overflow.

"This is a way to, one, keep storm water out of the combined sewers downtown so its actually a storm water C.S.O. project, but also it fixes the road," said Roswarski.

The project will be done by the end of this summer's construction season.
