City OKs 11 new work projects

– The Board of Public Works continued approving the blitz of construction projects planned for this summer, voting Wednesday to move forward on 11 new projects.

As part of the massive investment in the city’s streets and neighborhoods promised in return for an increase in the local income tax, the city is doing millions of dollars worth of construction projects in the next five years.

The projects approved Wednesday include intersection improvements at North Clinton and Fairington Drive, near BakerStreet Steakhouse just north of Memorial Coliseum; a package of sidewalk and curb ramp repairs covering 145 street corners across the city; and brick street repairs on Fourth Street.

Other projects include concrete street and sidewalk repairs in the Crown Colony neighborhood; concrete repairs on Airport Drive near Fort Wayne International Airport; and a trail along Till Road between Dawsons Creek Boulevard and the Pufferbelly Trail.

Also approved was a package of street-lighting improvements across the city and sidewalk repairs on Edsall Avenue on the city’s east side.

Most of the projects will be bid in early April and will be completed this summer.
