FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — Beginning Tuesday, October 3 a westbound lane will open on East State Boulevard to allow traffic to flow in both directions during ongoing construction after delays Monday.

City officials said that the delays come after crews did not show up to move barricades to allow for new lanes and traffic flow.

This change is to accommodate crews as they work to replace water mains and lead service lines built in 1915, moving them to the south side of the street.

Crescent Avenue, on the south side of the intersection, will remain closed for ongoing roadwork.

Suggested detours for motorists on Crescent are;

Northbound – E. State to Parnell Avenue to St. Joe Boulevard, to Crescent

Southbound – E. State to Anthony to Lake Avenue to Crescent

Motorist should plan their routes accordingly and be aware of possible traffic delays.
