LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - An update to a problem we reported on in December regarding flooding on Main Street.
The city is moving forward to help businesses stay dry after dealing with unwanted water during heavy rainfall.
Even after the $5.5 million streetscape project flooding was a problem.
The city will conduct a study that will map exactly where the extra water is coming from.
They will be looking to add new drains and divert water from other side streets.
Lafayette City Engineer Jeromy Grenard says the study will begin this week.
"The issues that we are seeing at 7th and Main and 11th and Main will be mitigated but also going forward, anything in the downtown area we will be able to make some good decisions as far as drainage goes," said Grenard.
The study will take two to three months to complete.
Grenard says there will be no road closures due to the study.
