Bridge replacement to close section of Washington Center Road

May 30, 2018 GMT

Beginning Monday, Washington Center Road between Cross Creek Boulevard and Country Forest Drive will be closed for five months for bridge improvements over Spy Run Creek.

The bridge had been determined to be failing by the Allen County Highway Department two years ago and the weight limit was lowered, a statement from the City of Fort Wayne said.

The new bridge will account for the increase in traffic in the area and will have an extra traffic lane added in each direction along with trail, sidewalk connections and lighting improvements.

Motorists are advised to detour using Cook Road, via Lima and Hueguenard roads.
