PLEASE DO NOT MOVE BARRICADES

Newly poured concrete needs 7 days to cure. Do NOT move barricades and drive over concrete that is curing. It can damage the concrete, reduce the pavement’s life  -- causing it to crumble within months. Please be vigilant and stop people from moving barricades.

Parking: Residents may not have access to their driveway while work is being done on the section of their street. Please park away from construction and DO NOT block traffic lanes.

Trash & Recycling Collection: The night before collection day, residents should place their garbage and recycling containers near the curb, away from the barricades of construction zones for collection – which may be across the street or at the end of the cul-de-sac.

If garbage collection trucks are not able to get to your street, due to construction work, they will try to collect the next day, before construction begins in the morning. For more information, call 311.

Neighborhood Engagement: Public Works staff members have been meeting with neighborhood associations to give residents the opportunity to view work zones, meet the contractors and ask questions about work being done in their neighborhoods. For questions or concerns, you may reach the Division of Public Works by calling 311 or 427-8311.

The City of Fort Wayne is experiencing momentum and investments. Our downtown is thriving, neighborhoods are growing and we’re seeing a positive business climate with job growth and expansion projects. Two things we hear a lot about from the public are riverfront development and addressing neighborhood sidewalk and alley challenges. We’re especially concerned about neighborhood to school connectivity.

In order to make continued investments in the riverfront and neighborhood infrastructure, funding sources need to be identified. An income tax adjustment proposed by City Councilman Dr. John Crawford could generate the necessary funds to invest in the riverfront and neighborhood sidewalks and alleys. These revenues would help advance phases two and three of riverfront development, add new sidewalks throughout Fort Wayne and address areas of Fort Wayne Community Schools and East Allen County Schools that lack sidewalks for children. The plan would also allow for expanding the maintenance program for existing sidewalks and repairs to alleys throughout the City.

Local income tax proposal presentations given at City Council by the Parks & Recreation Department (riverfront) and the Public Works Division (sidewalks and alleys) on June 27, 2017.
