Happy Hollow Road Reconstruction Project:

Happy Hollow Road has been completely reconstructed and has been opened to two-way traffic as of December 23rd, 2016. Renovation included relocating utilities, and building new underdrain stuctures, curbs, and concrete driveway approaches.  Trail and lighting improvements will come along in spring as weather and funds permit.

River Road Combined Sewer Overflow Project: 

This $25 million dollar project was awarded to Bowen Engineering. This 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. This effort will greatly reduce the amount of sewer overflow into the Wabash River during heavy rain events. Bowen Engineering along with Milestone Contractors have all but wrapped up construction on this project. A new roundabout has been constructed at the intersection of River Road and Williams / Tapawingo. This allowed for River Road to be reponed  before the Thanksgiving Holiday. Intermittent lane restrictions will be required to finalize landscaping.
