Press release from the City of Fort Wayne issued yesterday:
Wallen to reopen at 6 p.m. today, second closure expected this week
Work part of INDOT’s SR 3/Lima Road lane widening project
(May 10, 2010) – Wallen Road east of Lima Road is scheduled to reopen at 6 p.m. today with a second closure scheduled for later this week to complete the installation of the storm sewer when weather conditions cooperate.
The road will close again to finish the work, as early as 6 a.m. Tuesday if weather permits. Wallen Road will remain open until the second closure.
Residential access will be maintained to homes adjacent to the work area. During the closure, drivers should use Cook and Coldwater roads as detours.
This closure is part of an INDOT added travel lanes project on Lima Road/S.R. 3, which extends from Ludwig Road to Dupont Road.
The 2.88-mile added travel lanes project includes three northbound and three southbound lanes, raised center curb median separating opposing traffic, curb/gutter, closed drainage system, inlets, sewer pipes, and 8-foot-wide multiuse path on both sides. Project will be complete in 2011.
All closures are weather permitting.
