Dupont Road Reconstruction

Please click here to see a map of the detour route

The Dupont Road Construction project moves into a new phase on Monday, April 30 ­– one that will close the road to through traffic between Lima Road and Coldwater Road for about four months.   The actual closure is between Salomon Farm and Dawsons Creek Boulevard/La Cabreah Lane. The road will be open only for local traffic – those using Dupont to visit businesses or to access their home.   Through traffic from Coldwater to Lima will have a detour of either Carroll Road or Wallen Road. Traffic delays are expected and motorists should allow for additional travel time in the area.

Visitors to Salomon Farm and west of the closure will have access from Lima Road.  Visitors to the Parkview YMCA and businesses east of the closure will have access from Coldwater Road.

Improvements to enhance safety for motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians are underway on Dupont between Lima Road and Coldwater Road. Enhancements include expanding the road to four lanes with a turn lane, where needed, adding a sidewalk on the north side of the road and a trail on the south side of the road.    A pedestrian/bicycle crossing, under the road, will connect the Pufferbelly Trail from Salomon Farm Park to the existing trail north of Dupont Road.   Currently, there is no pedestrian infrastructure on Dupont.

The project, which addresses safety and congestion, will take place over two construction seasons with completion coming in 2019.  Weekly updates can be found at www.cityoffortwayne.org/dupont

Washington Center Road Bridge Replacement    ** Click Here for a Detour Map **

Fort Wayne, Ind. — Beginning Monday, June 4, 2018, Washington Center Road will be closed between Cross Creek Boulevard and Country Forest Drive to replace the bridge over Spy Run Creek. The closure is expected to last through October.

An official detour directs traffic to Cook Road, via Lima Road and Hueguenard Road.

Nearly two years ago the Allen County Highway Department determined that the bridge was failing and lowered the weight limit.  Design of the new bridge is complete,  and construction is ready to begin. 

In less than ten years traffic on the road has increased by more than 20%, growing from 11,400 in 2009 to 13,900 today.  This bridge is within Fort Wayne city limits, but the Allen County Highway Department is the lead agency for this federally funded project.

The new bridge will add an extra traffic lane in each direction, connect to a trail and sidewalk and improve lighting.  While the bridge is replaced, the City is working on a separate project to add a new traffic signal at Cross Creek Boulevard, east of the bridge.
