  • River Road Combined Sewer Overflow Project: This $25 million dollar project was awarded to Bowen Engineering. The project entails the installation of a pipe 8 feet in diameter and more than 20 feet deep under the southbound lanes of River Road stretching from just north of the West Lafayette Wastewater Treatment Plant to Quincy Avenue. This is a combined sewer benefit that is part of our long term control plan and permit with IDEM. The project will greatly reduce the amount of sewer overflow into the Wabash River during heavy rain events. Intermittent lane restrictions will be required to finalize landscaping. The contractor is currently working through a final “punch list” of items to be completed before the project is officially finalized. 
  • Happy Hollow Road Reconstruction: Happy Hollow Road has been reconstructed along both sides of the road. They have completed the roadway and trail asphalt. Final grading, seed and sod are being completed along with permanent striping and signage. The planned final completion date is April 6th of this year.
  • Kingston Trail: This project will add a trail along the north side of Kingston Dr. This will run in front of the Happy Hollow Elementary School and be an easier and safer connection route for pedestrians and bicyclists to access the southwestern entry point of Happy Hollow Park. The project construction was awarded to the lowest bidder, Milestone Contractors, for approximately $600,000.       Construction is expected to begin in late spring 2017.
  • State Street: Preliminary work and utility locates have been underway. The first full closure of State Street (from Airport Road to N University St) will be closed to through traffic beginning on April 3, 2017. Traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction between the eastern city limits and River Road to begin storm sewer construction in that area.
  • 2016 CDBG:       This project which is working on improving ADA compliance for our sidewalks and replacing broken curb and gutter sections in the New Chauncey area, will be underway starting on April 1, 2017.
