Amid the dust and slow moving construction equipment, downtown Lafayette visitors will see bright orange and blue signs emblazoned with the message “Open For Business.”

It's the heart of a city-led marketing campaign to keep customers and merchants informed -- and concerns to a minimum -- as crews widen sidewalks and install decorative lighting, planters and other amenities on sections of Main Street.

Fiber optic network project gaining speed in Lafayette area

Sep 19, 2012

The effort to run a fiber optic network to every home and business in Lafayette and parts of Tippecanoe County has taken a significant step forward. That’s according to the company making the effort.

The Lafayette Economic Development Commission is recommending the city council approve a bond for the Metronet project.

Company consultant Steve Biggerstaff says the city would not be liable for the bond, which is needed to start the work.
