WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — After more than a year of orange cones up and down State Street in West Lafayette, it's soon opening to traffic.


By the end of Thursday, drivers should be able to drive from U.S. 231 to the Wabash River. Crews are putting the final touches on the 2.2 mile stretch. The Chauncey Village area opened in August, but the street remained closed from University Street to U.S. 231.

West Lafayette Director of Development Erik Carlson said while the opening is a milestone, there is still work to be done.

"People are aware that, while that's back open and while all the roads are converted to two-way, we still have another year of work to do to put together this overall plan that is the State Street project," Carlson said.

The next phase of the State Street project happens around March next year. Stadium Avenue will be resurfaced between Northwestern all the way to McCormick Road. That will be followed by a new roundabout at McCormick and Stadium.
