WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — More than two miles of roads are being resurfaced in West Lafayette. Tuesday night a meeting is scheduled at the Morton Community Center to inform those who will be impacted.
The repaving project will take place in the Bar Barry Heights Neighborhood. That's near the Salisbury Street and Sagamore Parkway intersection. Some of the asphalt is starting to crack and it's causing a bumpy drive.
"The roads will be rough for maybe a week or two," said Assistant city engineer Marcus Smith. "They'll get new roads again and so if they're gone at work during the day they probably see our guys working at all. It'll be a fairly easy project for homeowners to live through."
All the bad asphalt will be removed and replaced for about $445,000. Smith said the project will get started this summer.
"It's not too invasive of a project," said Smith. "We're not tearing a part the whole road we're just milling off the top inch and so that'll be a fairly quick process. We'll come through mill it and we're going to seal the base layer of the road and then we'll lay asphalt down."
The meeting to learn more about the construction is being held at the Morton Community Center tonight at 6:30.
