Lafayette Avenue Road Reconstruction
HWC was responsible for the full-time inspection of the Lafayette Avenue project in Terre Haute, Indiana. This project included reconstruction of Lafayette Ave and portions of 25th Street between Fort Harrison Road and Haythorne Avenue, approximately 1.1 miles. The project included the relocation of the centerline of the existing roadway, installation of a new storm sewer system with detention pond, installation of concrete curb and gutter, concrete sidewalks, ADA ramps, concrete approaches, and a center turn lane. The existing railroad crossing was widened and updated from a two-lane signalized crossing to a wider crossing with signalized lights and gates with a center curb island. Coordination between the Indiana Railroad and their Subcontractor RJ Cormann for the closure of Lafayette Avenue and detour route was essential for a smooth transition during construction. This LPA project was funded by the City of Terre Haute and INDOT. The project cost was $7.99 million.
