LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — New curbs and sidewalks are coming to another Lafayette neighborhood.

This is the fourth project the city has done this year to make the city more walk-able. The work is to replace sidewalks and ramps on Hart Streets from north 16th to north 17th street.

Perrine Street will undergo the same construction from north 17th to north 18th street.

The sidewalks and ramps on the west side of north 17th street from Greenbush to Meharry will also be re-done.

None of the roads will close during the project, though some may be down to just one lane.

Lafayette City Engineer Jeromy Grenard said good sidewalks improve safety for walkers, as well as promote less car-centered lifestyles.

"It connects you to those other pieces of the transportation puzzle, so they are probably the most important piece for anyone who is a pedestrian," said Grenard. 

Work is expected to begin in October and will take about a month to complete.
