April 25, 2019 - Mayor Tom Henry joined area residents, members of City Council, Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) officials, and the City of Fort Wayne’s Public Works Division to break ground for the next phase of the State Boulevard enhancement and realignment project.
Phase II of the project, between Cass Street and Clinton Street, will improve pedestrian, bicycle and vehicular traffic, straighten the curve that’s been the location of numerous accidents and replace a bridge in disrepair.
"Our continued commitment to making lasting and meaningful infrastructure improvements is having a positive impact," said Mayor Henry. "The next phase of the State Boulevard project will enhance the surrounding neighborhoods and assist us in our proactive economic development efforts to bring new business investments to Fort Wayne and build upon the strong employer base we currently have. By working in a collective manner, we've positioned our City as a point of destination for business investment, strong neighborhoods, and unique quality of life amenities for families and individuals."
