Main Street lanes restricted for hydrant replacement

Two eastbound lanes of Main Street will be closed east of Van Buren Street from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, the city of Fort Wayne has announced.

The restriction will allow the city's Water Maintenance Department to replace a fire hydrant at the intersection, the city's Traffic Engineering Department said in a statement.

Two-way traffic will be maintained in the two westbound lanes, the statement said.

It said the traffic signal will be turned off, and the intersection will be controlled as a four-way stop while construction is taking place.
