S.R. 26 closure scheduled to start June 1 for installation of new roundabout at Newman Road

The S.R. 26 and Newman Road intersection, located just west of U.S. 231, is scheduled to close June 1 as shown in the map below. A roundabout will be installed at the S.R. 26/Newman Road intersection, and the closure will last through July 15.

During the closure, access to Purdue Technology Center Aerospace (PTCA) will be maintained with a temporary access road. State Road 26 will be closed to all other traffic, and the following detour will be in place:

  • U.S. 231
  • Lindberg Road
  • Klondike Road
  • Sharon Chapel Road

Access to Zucrow Labs will continue to be maintained from Airport Road, Aviation Drive and the newly paved access road to the laboratories.

In March, the section of Newman Road stretching from S.R. 26 to just west of Allison Road closed in both directions. This closure will remain in place through fall 2020.

Questions may be directed to Kristi Brown, senior project manager, at (765) 494-7183 or or Erin Easter, director of development for West Lafayette, at (765) 775-5160 or online.

State Road 26 will close on June 1 as the next phase of the Newman Road project.
