FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Another busy Fort Wayne road is slated for construction.

About 22,000 vehicles use Hillegas Road every day, as it’s a very commonly used stretch of road between State and Coliseum Boulevards.

Unfortunately, it’s also prone to traffic backups and can be a bit treacherous, whether it’s due to wintry weather or someone stopping to make a turn into a driveway or neighborhood.

City engineers now tell our Partners in News at ABC 21 Hillegas will be widened to four lanes, with a center turn lane added. The bad news is we don’t know for sure yet when work will start, and it could take until 2035 to finish.
