WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Construction is nearly complete on the first phase of the Revive Klondike project.
Once complete, the intersection at Klondike and Lindberg roads will reopen. The intersection has been closed since last summer when construction began.
The intersection will feature a new roundabout. Lights have also been added along the street.
Tippecanoe County Highway Department Director Stewart Kline expects the road to open by the end of the month.
"Contractors right now are just putting in the ramps and sidewalks. As soon as that's done they'll do the final pavement and stripe. Then we'll open that,” said Kline.
Phase two will begin shortly after the intersection reopens.
"We'll be closing Cumberland. So surprise. Open Lindberg and close Cumberland,” said Kline.
The closure is expected to start in June. Stewart expects this part of the project to be completed before winter.
