WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The West Lafayette Happy Hollow Road Light Project is almost complete.

The project was expected to cost $408,000. But, city engineers say the project is about $15,000 under budget.

The lights can be found along Happy Hollow from North River Road to Sagamore Parkway.

Engineers tested out the lights starting around three o'clock Tuesday.

The lights will stay on for the next 48 hours.

Project Engineer Dan Auckley says this project will be beneficial for pedestrians.

"Especially with the shorter days now, they'll be able to get out there early in the morning when it's still dark, it'll be lit up. In the evening it's dark by six o'clock now. It will be 5:30 before long it'll be dark and you'll still be able to get out on the trail and enjoy that without having to worry about running into people, tripping. That kind of stuff," said Auckley.

Workers finished putting up the lights on Monday. The project should be complete by early next week.
