Dupont Road reopens; State project advances

September 18, 2018

One lane of traffic in each direction is now open on Dupont Road, city of Fort Wayne officials announced Monday.

Dupont Road has been under construction for several months as crews undertake a road expansion, add sidewalks and a trail, and build a pedestrian and bicycle crossing under the road that will link the Pufferbelly Trail from Salomon Farm Park to the existing trail on the north side.

Officials are reminding residents that the area is still a construction zone and drivers will experience occasional stopped traffic and lane shifts. The posted speed limit through the work zone is 35 mph.

The Dupont Road project is expected to be complete next year.

Phase II of the ongoing State Boulevard realignment will move forward today as the Fort Wayne City Council prepares to consider two contracts for that portion of the project.

The first contract, a 989,955 construction inspection services contract with American Structurepoint. INDOT requires a prequalified firm to provide inspection services.

Phase II will be put out for bids in February.
