Water-main break slows Wells Street traffic

November 16, 2018

A water main has broken in the 3400 block of Wells Street, and southbound vehicles are being routed into the center turn lane, the city of Fort Wayne said this afternoon.

Northbound drivers will stay in their regular lane, City Utilities said in a statement.

It said drivers may want to avoid Wells between Franke Park Drive and Fernhill Avenue.

Work on the 12-inch cast iron pipe, which was installed in 1959, is expected to last into this evening, the statement said.
