To live in West Lafayette these days is to follow the continuing saga of the State Street redesign.

The $120 million project looms over the future of the city – but just how in unclear.

Today on Ask The Mayor, we quiz West Lafayette Mayor John Dennis about what he’s learned of the project after being kept in the dark by confidentiality agreements.

And we’ll get his take on whether Purdue now wields more influence than the city itself.
