WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Some much needed improvements are coming to West Lafayette streets and sidewalks.

The city is getting ready to start the 2019 Community Crossings Project.

It's focusing on areas in Chauncey Village and Barbarry Heights.

The project includes resurfacing streets and rebuilding curbs and sidewalks. It will also add sidewalks in Chauncey Village.

City engineer Ed Garrison said he'd like to see every sidewalk and road fixed, but these areas are in the most need of repair.

"We're doing everything based on ratings of roadways and areas, in the case of sidewalks, where people are walking," he said. "[It's] just to make sure we are hitting the majority of the community and taking care of the worst problems first."

The city will partner with the Indiana Department of Transportation to pay for the project.

Garrison said work should begin in late May and wrap up in August.
