Crews to begin work on third phase of Sagamore Pkwy

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Starting in July, crews will begin construction on another phase of the Sagamore Parkway project.

Tuesday morning, the Lafayette Board of Works approved a contract to begin the third phase of the project.

City Engineer Jenny Leshney said after a long winter, they’re looking to continue repairs from Home Depot to McCarty Lane. However, she said crews will be working overnight to avoid traffic jams during the day.

“Doing that we’ll be working with business owners,” Leshney said. “The idea would be that we will work from 7 p.m. until 7 a.m. We will work to get people in and out of businesses still open after 7 p.m.”

Leshney said the project will begin sometime after July 4 and will cost about $724,000.

This phase is expected to be finished by the time Purdue students return from summer break.
