U.S. 52

Lafayette Mayor's Office

Months ago, the city of Lafayette announced it was contracting with a Michigan company to subsidize the purchase of new recycling bins and the cost of picking up recyclables each week.

That was supposed to start two months ago.

So this week on WBAA’s Ask The Mayor, we talk with Lafayette’s Tony Roswarski about the updated timeline for advertising on trash toters.

City of West Lafayette

The city of West Lafayette has settled a legal case brought by a man shocked with a stun gun at Chauncey Hill Mall in 2013 for taping a police takedown of another person.

On this edition of Ask The Mayor, we talk with John Dennis about whether the incident has led to disciplinary action for any of the officers or changes in the way the city’s police conduct their business.

Also on today’s show, in a construction season where Greater Lafayette’s motto might as well be “you can’t get there from here,” why is the city doing seemingly non-essential roadwork?

Drivers on U.S. 52 in Lafayette by the Tippecanoe Mall will experience road work for several weeks.

The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announces the highway, also known as Sagamore Parkway South, will be restricted to one lane in each direction at Maple Point Drive. That's in front of Pepe’s Restaurant.

The work is scheduled to begin tomorrow.  The lane restrictions are expected to last approximately three weeks.  The contractor will be constructing a center median.

Lafayette leaders will have a great say over two major roads running through the city.
