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
