Press release from the City of Fort Wayne:
Water main leak creates west-bound Jefferson Boulevard lane restriction
Service interrupted for 3800 to 4700 blocks; Jefferson Pointe unaffected
A Fort Wayne City Utilities water main repair on West Jefferson Boulevard has created a lane restriction for westbound traffic between the traffic signal at Jefferson and Illinois Road and the signal at the entrance to Jefferson Pointe.

The Parkwest complex and several other businesses and medical offices in the area are without water. Jefferson Pointe shopping center is not affected.
