FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - Area residents are invited to take part in a forum that will address a planned overhaul of the Bluffton Road Bridge in Fort Wayne.

The City will host a meeting at 6 p.m. on Feb. 2 at the Sears Pavillion, in the 1700 block of Bluffton Road. The session will address a project that includes replacement of the bridge beams and deck, and added enhancements such as wider sidewalks with lookout points.

A team from the City of Fort Wayne will discuss the purpose and need for replacing the bridge superstructure, how they plan to keep total closure of the bridge to a minimum and the tentative timeline. There will be time for questions from the public, as well.

Construction is expected to begin in late 2024 or early 2025. Those unable to attend can watch a recording of the presentation, which will be posted online at Facebook.com/CityofFortWayne.
