Sewer project shuts down Harrison, Superior

DAVE GONG | The Journal Gazette

The intersection of Harrison and Superior streets is closed for about two months as crews begin to install two 60-inch-diameter sewer pipes, officials announced. 

The sewer project is one of many similar projects from both City Utilities and Fort Wayne Public Works throughout Fort Wayne, including in the downtown area.

It's also one of two street closures to affect Harrison Street. City officials announced Friday that Harrison between Main and Berry streets will be closed to allow for crane removal. Weather permitting, the street is expected to reopen Friday. 

The construction at Harrison and Superior is expected to continue through late June. 

Once complete, the sewage pipe will eventually connect to the Deep Rock Tunnel once it comes online in 2023.

API Construction was hired to perform the work this year to coincide with riverfront developments in the area, which include Promenade Park and the Riverview mixed-use development.
