I’m still betting all the flooding, not only earlier this year, but the last couple of years contributed to this problem. Â Press release from the City:
Clinton Street Lane Restrictions Continue
Second Pipe is Part of the Damage
Earlier Today, as City Utilities Sewer Maintenance crews reached the pipe that was believed to have caused the concrete collapse on North Clinton Street they discovered another pipe that T’s into the uncovered pipe was also damaged. The second pipe approaches from the east and runs under Duck Street.
Many of the old storm sewers in Fort Wayne’s downtown were built in the 1800’s and early 1900’s and it’s not uncommon for some of them to not appear on a map. Neither of the two pipes crews are working on this week on North Clinton is shown on a map.
Because of the newly discovered damage crews will continue to dig, this time in to Duck Street. The second pipe is still being uncovered and we don’t know what size it is at this point.
Crews will work through the night. Lane restrictions will remain in effect on Clinton Street until the repair is complete.
