West Jefferson section restricted for month

West Jefferson Boulevard will be reduced to one lane in each direction near Taylor Street for a month, and drivers are encouraged to find alternate routes, especially during rush hours, the city of Fort Wayne said today.

Jefferson will be limited between Randall and Reckeweg roads to allow a contractor to reconstruct and widen the street, the city's traffic engineering department said in a statement.

That will provide a left-turn lane on Jefferson at Taylor, the statement said.

It said the restrictions will begin Tuesday and continue for 30 days, weather permitting. The construction is to begin on the north side of Jefferson, and two-way traffic is to be maintained in the southbound lanes.
