Destination signs in works by city

The City of Fort Wayne is accepting bids for the construction and installation of 54 "wayfinding" signs as part of the Legacy Fort Wayne initiative.

The signs will be placed on main corridors and will provide directions to major destinations frequented by out-of-town visitors. The locations and wording are still being determined.

The wayfinding project is part of Front Door Fort Wayne, an award-winning plan that focuses on beautifying the city's corridors.

It incorporates existing landmarks, new landmarks, public art, lighting, signs, bike paths, sidewalks, landscaping and public transportation facilities and puts a priority on celebrating Fort Wayne's heritage and culture, officials said.
