Ewing Takes New Direction: Two-Way Conversion Starts Monday

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Starting Monday, August, 4th,  drivers will be able to go north or south when traveling on Ewing Street. The street will be converted from one-way travel heading north to a two-way street heading north and south.

The two-way conversion goes from Superior Street to Jefferson Boulevard where it connects to the already two-way Ewing. Officials with the City of Fort Wayne, released the following information in regards to the new traffic pattern change:

The two-way conversion will allow for the preparation and construction of the roundabout at Fairfield/Ewing/Superior and Wells. At the same time that Ewing converts to two-way, Fairfield will close to traffic between Superior Street and Main Street to allow for the west side of the roundabout to be constructed. Fairfield will be converted to 2-way when construction moves to the east side of the roundabout.

The conversion process begins Monday, August 4, and should be fully operational Tuesday afternoon, August 5. The intersection of Ewing/Wells/Superior will have a 3-way stop sign during the construction.

Ewing is an integral part of an important corridor on the west part of downtown that connects residences, sports and entertainment establishments, businesses, higher education facilities, the St. Marys River and the Wells Street Business District.
