CITY ANNOUNCES TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS
It’s construction season again and nearly 30 miles in street paving, reconstruction and repairs will take place through the end of October. The Public Works department will be working on streets throughout the community.
“Once again we are improving several sections of some of our major streets such as Stellhorn, Taylor, Tillman, Wayne Trace and Covington. But the majority of our projects will be in the heart of neighborhoods, streets like Devonshire, Margaret and Cherokee,” said Bob Kennedy, Director of Public Works.
The city is investing $4.8 million in streets, with an additional $10 million expected from Federal funds.
In nearly all cases, the construction and paving projects involve local companies. Under the formula used by the U.S. Government, this year’s projects will support more than 160 construction-related jobs.
Fort Wayne, Ind. – As part of the effort to encourage residents to install rain gardens on their property, Fort Wayne City Utilities is partnering with Riverview Nursery to provide a source of native perennial plants.
True native plants can be difficult to find. Riverview is committed to rain gardens and has stocked many native plants to support Fort Wayne's efforts. These native perennial plants have been grown from seeds gathered at sites around Fort Wayne.
Riverview, in cooperation with City Utilities, will conduct two native plant sales -- on May 25 and June 13 -- as part of the Catching Rain Fort Wayne rain garden program.
