Groundbreaking Ceremony for Roundabout Project

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Tuesday morning at 11:00 a.m., Mayor Tom Henry, along with several neighborhood and area business leaders joined together to break ground for the roundabout and two-way street conversion at Superior, Wells, Fairfield and Ewing.

 

“Demonstrating a commitment to enhancing our transportation system positions us as a leader in economic development, job growth and job retention, and strong neighborhoods,” said Mayor Henry. “The roundabout project is another example of the unprecedented momentum we’re experiencing in Fort Wayne. By working together, we’re investing in our future and making a meaningful difference for residents and businesses.”

 

The roundabout will connect the five-legged intersection of Wells from the north, Fairfield and Ewing from the south and Superior from the east and west. Upon completion of the roundabout, Ewing and Fairfield will be converted to two-way traffic.


It will be constructed in two phases – with the west side of the project beginning this week. Also this week – Ewing will be converted to a two-way street. The second phase of the roundabout will be completed by October and both Ewing and Fairfield will be open to two-way when the roundabout is completed.


Landscaping, sidewalks, and bike lanes will be completed in 2015.
