Note: Actually, this is the Clinton Street Bridge over the Spy Run Creek. I’m hoping the Administration wasn’t consulted about the date and time for this.
A Tuesday night (City Council meeting night) which this Tuesday happens to be the final budget hearing at which many in the Administration will be in attendance. Â Probably not some of the nuts and bolts people, but still. Â The City Council will be asked to approve financing for the City’s portion, so why would you intentionally cut them out?

Who: INDOT, Designer
What: Public Hearing for Proposed Southbound U.S. 27 (Clinton Street) bridge replacement and road reconstruction project
When: Tuesday, October 27, at 6 p.m.
Where: North Side High School cafeteria (Door #1), 475 East State Boulevard, Fort Wayne
The replacement bridge over Spy Run Creek is proposed to be a three-span reinforced concrete slab bridge approximately 115′ in length and 56′ – 2″ in width. The clear roadway opening, between curbs, through the bridge will be 40′ including three, 12′ traffic lanes bordered by 2′ curb offsets. Sidewalks will be provided over the bridge. The pavement surface of the bridge deck will be concrete.
A total of approximately 1,800′ of southbound U.S. 27 will be reconstructed for this project. The asphalt pavement width will be 36′ consisting of three, 12′ traffic lanes with curb and gutter on each side of the roadway bordered on both sides by concrete sidewalks located at the back of the curbs.
A portion of Westbrook Drive was recently closed at U.S. 27 by the City of Fort Wayne as part of the voluntary buyouts along Eastbrook Drive and has granted approval for INDOT to close access to/from U.S. 27 as part of the project.
Construction of the project will require approximately 0.70 acre of new permanent right-of-way. A displacement of one commercial property and two residential properties are involved with this project. A proposed official detour over State routes would use S.R. 930 and Washington Boulevard. The length of the project is 0.6 mile.
The purpose of this public hearing is to offer all interested persons an opportunity to comment on the proposed plans for U.S. 27 (Clinton Street) road improvements approximately 550 feet south of Elizabeth Street to State Boulevard, including the bridge replacement over Spy Run Creek located in the City of Fort Wayne.
