South Street

For months, we’ve known a couple things about this summer’s road construction in Greater Lafayette.

One, it was always going to be a hassle.

And secondly, the cities seemed committed to trying to complete major projects while most Purdue students were away for the summer.

But the City of Lafayette now says the closure of the county’s busiest intersection isn’t slated to start until July and will last past the time students and their parents return.

Why is part of South Street closed?

Will the trees come back along Main Street?

When, oh when, will Sagamore Parkway be done?

Can the city construct a winning baseball team?

Some additional parking spaces are coming to downtown Lafayette.

City Engineer Jenny Leshney says removing two lanes of traffic across several blocks will free up about 19 spots on 4th Street from Columbia to Alabama streets. That also will create roughly three dozen spots on South Street from 3rd to 6th.

Leshney says changing Alabama Street from one-way to two-way prompted the changes.
