Press release from the City of Fort Wayne:
Spy Run Avenue scheduled to reopen Friday, weather permitting
City will announce when lanes reopen
E&B Paving is finishing the asphalt base in the 2200 block of Spy Run Avenue today. Weather permitting Friday, crews will apply the final surface starting at 7:30 a.m. and it could reopen by 1 p.m. or 2 p.m. Friday. The City will send out an update when it reopens.
The City and the Indiana Department of Transportation closed Spy Run between Elizabeth Street and State Boulevard Monday night when sagging pavement was discovered. City Utilities inspected the water main and storm sewer in that area and found no problems with the lines.
The section of pavement is being reconstructed to INDOT standards.
Spy Run between Elizabeth Street and State Boulevard remains closed until further notice. One lane of Lafayette Street and Spy Run Avenue is open between Jefferson Boulevard and Elizabeth Street to local traffic.
Until it reopens, drivers can use Main Street and Sherman Boulevard or Columbia Avenue and North Anthony Boulevard. Wells Street is under construction and not recommended as detour. Truck traffic should use a detour on Coliseum Boulevard.
On Tuesday, the west curb lane will be reconstruction and could result in lane restrictions. The City will announce any restrictions in advance of the construction.
