The State Street Redevelopment Project (SSRP) has many objectives and benefits to the Discovery Park District. State Street is the backbone of West Lafayette and for those visiting the Discovery Park District and Purdue University, State Street will be their first impression. The majority of residents and those who work in the area utilize State Street or its nearby roads every day.

State Street is being transformed into a vibrant, welcoming corridor that reflects the innovative and creative spirit of West Lafayette and Discovery Park District. When the construction is completed in late fall 2018, State Street will be an attractive and easy-to-navigate city point of pride through the vision of the SSRP. Tree-lined sidewalks, bicycle paths, public art and more will create a picturesque leisure-time destination.

  • Pedestrian and bicycle paths
  • Streetscape amenities and gathering places to create a sense of place (plazas, placemaking areas and greenspaces)
  • Improved and unified “quality of place” for City and University
  • Technical improvements (drainage)
  • Welcoming east and west gateways
  • Redesigned travel lanes with convenient access to campus and Discovery Park District
  • New and reconstructed sidewalks and bus stops for improved pedestrian safety
  • New lighting, street trees and stormwater / drainage improvements
