WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Smoother roads are coming to the Bar-Barry Heights and Chauncey Village area.

The state awarded the city of West Lafayette with a $44,000 grant for the two projects. This grant will help double the amount of work the city can get done this year.

Last year, the city began work in the Bar Berry Heights neighborhood with a similar grant. The city plans to complete that work and resurface five of Chauncey Villages busiest roads, including Chauncey Ave., Harrison St., Marsteller St., Meridian St., and Vine St.

West Lafayette's Assistant Engineer Marcus Smith said these grants are always a huge help for the city.

“Now we were able to do it in two years instead of more life four years because of these grants,” said Smith. “It goes a lot quicker and easier on the residents because it's more streets at one time instead of a long drawn out process.”

Smith said it has always been helpful after winter takes its toll.

“The winter always takes its toll on the roadways but thankfully we've been able to get this grant for a couple of years and so it has been really helpful in resurfacing a lot of the roads in the community,” said Smith.

The next step is finding a contractor to work on the roads. The city plans to begin construction after the school year. Roads should be complete before the school year begins this fall.
