WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Three major construction projects are set to get underway in West Lafayette this summer.
Mayor John Dennis said the city will start on the final phase of the Cumberland Avenue project. Work will start between Salisbury Street and Soldiers Home Road and will take one year to complete. Crews will also make improvements at the intersection of Salisbury Avenue and Navajo Street.
That project starts this month and is scheduled to end in August. Dennis said the goal is to eliminate traffic jams in the area of Salisbury.
“We will try to do everything we can to synchronize the lighting all the way from Grant Street through Lindberg. Up to and including Salisbury and Navajo, to make sure that it is more efficient and we don’t have the back-log that we have had,” Dennis said.
The third project for West Lafayette will be the reconstruction of Happy Hollow Road. Dennis said Happy Hollow will be narrowed in order to slow traffic speeds and allow them to build a walking trail to the Happy Hollow Park.
