April 11, 2024 - The City of Fort Wayne’s Public Works Division was awarded $1.5 million from the State’s Community Crossings Matching Grant Fund Program.

The funding, coupled with local dollars, will go toward Phase II of the Woodland Lakes Concrete Street Rehabilitation Project this year, which is one of the City’s comprehensive neighborhood improvement projects. The Community Crossings Matching Grant Funds, which are administered by the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT), can cover up to 50% of the chosen project.

“Neighborhood infrastructure is a top priority and we’re looking forward to the next phase of the Woodland Lakes improvement project,” said acting mayor Karl Bandemer. “The City of Fort Wayne values and appreciates its partnership with the State of Indiana as we work together to provide a safe transportation system for the public.”

Since 2014, the City has invested more than $340 million in neighborhood infrastructure enhancements.
