Allows for improved pedestrian, bicycle safety

Following through on a request from the Southwest Area Partnership, Fort Wayne'€™s Traffic Engineering Department has installed pushbutton crosswalk signals at the intersection of Oakdale Drive and Broadway.

The new signals at the south and east sides of the Broadway, Oakdale and Bluffton Road intersection are expected to go into operation Monday, weather permitting.

In addition to crosswalk signals, the City will paint piano-key style markings on the pavement Monday as well, weather permitting. The City also plans to install ADA ramps at these locations later this fall.

This intersection has high pedestrian and bicycle traffic since it is adjacent to the Rivergreenway system and close to Foster Park, plus proximity to residential neighborhoods.
