Summary:

Restore Sagamore is the City of Lafayette's multi-phase project aimed at repurposing a primary Lafayette thoroughfare that was recently relinquished to the City by INDOT. An important goal of the project has been to transform the former US 52 Highway from a utilitarian, impervious traffic moving highway to a welcoming and attractive corridor that better meets the needs of the Lafayette Community, including its businesses and residents.

Phase 2 of Restore Sagamore presented challenges from large storm water runoff flows that escaped the corridor and overburdened nearby combined sewer overflow systems. An innovative use of center median raingardens, as well as, separating and elevating travel lanes to perpetuate surface flows resulted in an effective, multiple benefit solution for Lafayette.
