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

City Utilities has hired a contractor to replace a deteriorating water main on Doan Drive between South Calhoun Street and Noll Avenue.  The existing cast iron water main has outlived its useful life.  It will be replaced with approximately 400 linear feet of plastic water main that has an expected future life of 75 to 100 years. The  installation will be done using horizontal directional drilling.

City Utilities is designing a project that will improve drainage by installing new storm sewers, replacing portions of the existing stormwater management infrastructure and regrading areas so that more stormwater runoff will be directed into the storm sewer system.
