Bridge undergoing inspection, repair following accident Friday

The southbound lanes of Hillegas Road are closed between Washington Center Road and Coliseum Boulevard Extended while the bridge over U.S. 30 is inspected and repaired following an accident Friday.

The detour is eastbound Washington Center Road to southbound Lima Road and westbound on Coliseum Boulevard back to Hillegas Road. Signs marking the detour should be up by 9 p.m. today.

The southbound lanes have been closed since an accident Friday night damaged the bridge. Indiana Department of Transportation and City of Fort Wayne officials are working together and expect this closure to last at least 30 days, depending on the severity of the damage.

This closure does not affect northbound traffic. INDOT or the City of Fort Wayne will announce when the bridge reopens and provide updates as needed.
