On one side of the corner of Pierce and State Street, construction on West Lafayette’s signature redevelopment project is ongoing. On the other, a crew is working to finalize repairs after an old gas line was broken Wednesday.

West Lafayette city engineer Ed Garrison says the gas line was disturbed during minor improvements to curbs and sidewalks on Pierce.

West Lafayette officials Wednesday officially announced they plan to close off two additional streets in conjunction with the State Street overhaul.

City Development Director Erik Carlson says he’s been telling businesses for months that Brown Street would be dead-ended at River Road, even though there was no money secured for any further improvements.
