FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): A long-awaited road construction project in Fort Wayne has been delayed again.
Bass Road has been under construction since April of 2017, in a multi-year project that includes widening the road and installing roundabouts.
The roundabout at Hadley Road was supposed to open two months ago, then this Friday, but problems with a railroad crossing there have delayed it until the end of March. Most residents tell our Partners in News at ABC 21 they’re tired of waiting:
“Why, again, are they not halting the train traffic instead of the people traffic, the car traffic?” asked Sarah Edwards. “It’s like, open it up for the people, make them wait if it’s their issue.”
Several others pointed out where impatient drivers had either moved the barricades at the roundabout or just driven on the sidewalk to avoid them.
Even after this stretch is finished, another roundabout will begin construction at the intersection of Bass and Thomas roads within the next couple of years.
