TIPPECANOE CO., Ind. (WLFI) — From Sagamore Parkway to Interstate 65 to State Street, Greater Lafayette has seen it's fair share of road work in the last year.
While projects like State Street are wrapping up, the last stretch is still going to cause some problems for drivers.
"We'll have a lot of closures through the summer when the students are gone in the Purdue campus area," said West Lafayette City Engineer Ed Garrision.
Closures and detours along Stadium Avenue, McCormick Road and Airport Road will have drivers rethinking their routes through campus.
However, Garrision said keeping the public informed on upcoming changes is a priority.
"Just make sure our residents know what's on," explained Garrison. "We may have not done the best job of that in the past , but we definitely have that as a high priority moving forward."
Projects outside of the city could also cause delays for drivers. That includes a 45 day plan to repair the Schuyler Avenue bridge over the Wildcat Creek.
Starting in July, the bridge will be down to one lane in either direction.
A major project on Klondike Road will improve pedestrian travel and add left turn lanes. That work begins in June.
Lafayette City Engineer Jeromy Grenard said there is some good news when it comes to construction.
"They've already seen a lot of what we're going to throw at them this year," said Grenard.
Projects like Restore Sagamore are almost done.
"Early July we'll be finished with all the Sagamore restrictions as far as the city's projects go," he said.
Grenard said there are several smaller projects planned to improve city streets, but he said they won't have as big of an effect on drivers as the Restore Sagamore Project.
"We're trying to reduce the amount of impact to the community," Grenard added. "Get in there. Get it done and get out."
