Coldwater Road section to close for 3 weeks

A section of Coldwater Road north of Windrift Lane, between Dupont and Union Chapel roads, will be closed for about three weeks beginning Tuesday, the city of Fort Wayne said today.

The closure through Aug. 8 will enable one contractor to install a sanitary line across Coldwater Road and a second to install a new culvert across the Roy Delagrange Drain, the city's traffic engineering department said in a statement.

A detour will use Dupont, Auburn and Union Chapel roads, the statement said.
