Open houses set for State Boulevard project

FORT WAYNE – The city Division of Public Works on Monday announced a series of open-house sessions for residents to view and make suggestions on the State Boulevard project.

The project focuses on the boulevard between Cass Street and Spy Run Avenue.

Preliminary designs have been rendered so that residents can have a better idea of what the street could look like, Monday's announcement said. It said these "preliminary" designs came from public input, conveyed at numerous meetings during the last four years.

Residents can drop by anytime during each two-hour open house:

  • Feb. 25, 5 to 7 p.m., Franke Pond Pavilion, Franke Parke, 3411 Sherman Blvd.
  • March 1, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Main Allen County Public Library, Meeting Room A, 900 Library Plaza.
  • March 7, 5 to 7 p.m., Psi Ote Barn, Lower Level, Bob Arnold Northside Park, East State Boulevard and Parnell Avenue.
The final plans will be submitted at a public meeting, the announcement said.
