FORT WAYNE – The Board of Public Works on Wednesday approved the Ewing-Fairfield Conversion, a construction project officials say will transform the western half of downtown.
The project will convert Ewing, Fairfield and Baker Streets from one-way streets to two-way, convert part of Main Street to a one-lane in each direction with a center turn lane and bike lanes, convert the Wells Street Bridge over the St. Marys River to two lanes in each direction with barrier-separated bike/pedestrian lanes on each side and construct a five-leg roundabout at the Ewing-Fairfield-Superior-Wells intersection.
The project is set to go to bid May 21, with work beginning in June. Officials expect major construction to be complete in the first half of November.
