January 31, 2022 - Due to the forecast for inclement weather on February 2, the City of Fort Wayne Public Works Division has rescheduled the Bluffton Road Bridge Project public meeting. The meeting will now be held in the Sears Pavilion, 1701 Bluffton Road, on Wednesday, February 9 at 6:00 p.m. Masks will be required for all attendees. The meeting will also be recorded and posted online at Facebook.com/CityofFortWayne.
The project will include replacement of the bridge beams and deck, and added enhancements such as wider sidewalks with lookout points. Construction is expected to begin in late 2024 or early 2025.
During the meeting, a team from the City of Fort Wayne will discuss the purpose and need for replacing the bridge superstructure, how they plan to keep total closure of the bridge to a minimum, and the tentative timeline. There will be time for questions from the public, as well.
