Sagamore Parkway Reconstruction

Sagamore Parkway2

Introduction

The City of Lafayette is always working to provide safe and efficient transportation options for those living and traveling to Lafayette for both work and play.  A major accomplishment toward this effort was the agreement signed by the City of Lafayette to take control of highway US 52 (Sagamore Parkway) between Schuyler Avenue to Main Street, from the Indiana Department of Transportation in 2012.  The agreement gives Lafayette the freedom and funds, to make improvements to Sagamore Parkway that best benefit the community.

 

Project Goals

  •  Provide pedestrian accommodations and comply with the City’s Master Trail Plan
  •  Improve traffic operations and safety
  •  Improve ride quality
  • Upgrade and improve the crossing at the railroad tracks
  •  Improve roadway drainage
  •  Improve runoff water quality with green infrastructure- best management practices, and by separating area CSOs
