LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- Streets and sidewalks in Lafayette could become a little more handicap accessible soon. The city is making an effort to become a little more ADA compliant.

The city received a community crossings grant worth $1.2 million. Some of the construction is happening on South Street and Columbia Street.

Mayor Tony Roswarski said the grant gives the city a chance to make streets and curbs wider and more accessible to everyone.

He said the construction will also allow the city to upgrade some of the older handicap ramps.

"We try to do so many ramps every year," said Roswarski. "There's a lot of corners in the city of Lafayette. And for many years, handicap ramps weren't always put in so we're really trying to catch up on that."

Roswarski said the grant is also funding construction that goes from South Street and Columbia Street up to Sagamore Parkway.
