The City of Fort Wayne Division of Public Works provides services that are essential to citizens’ daily lives. We provide vital support to neighborhoods, business, and economic development projects.


Active Transportation, the mobility of pedestrians and bicyclists, is a growing part of the Public Works Division.
Besides a strong commitment to the maintenance and improvement of roads we make significant improvements and connections in the way of sidewalks, trails, and bike lanes, improving safety, connectivity and strengthening neighborhoods.
