City Utilities is designing a project that will replace water mains on portions of North Clinton Street, Lima Road and Edgewood Avenue to improve the reliability of the water system and to eliminate sections of water main that break frequently. Design work is being done in spring of 2019 with construction anticipated later in the year.

Project Area Map
A contractor hired by City Utilities will install a water main extension on the north side of Wald Road. The purpose of the project is to increase water pressure in the area and make water available for new businesses. Construction is expected to begin during the week of January 21, 2019 and be completed in early summer of 2019.
Fort Wayne's Divisions of Public Works and City Utilities are working together on a flood protection project for the West Central neighborhood. The project consists of installation of a concrete "knee wall" of about three-feet in height with architectural details. The knee wall will be permenent. The design also calls for the knee wall to be topped -- when needed -- with vertical supports that will hold metal stop log panels in place to provide additional protection against flooding.
Construction of the project that will run along Thieme Drive from Main Street to Washington Boulevard is planned to begin once drip shaft construction at the intersection of Nelson, Thirme and Berry is complete.
Learn more about plans and timing for the project in this PowerPoint presentation from February 7, 2018
