FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Drivers are getting a heads up about a month-long closure of lanes downtown near Lafayette and Superior streets.

Starting Monday, Feb. 27, the left two lanes of the bridge at the intersection of Superior and Lafayette/US 27 will be closed, INDOT Northeast said on Facebook.

For about a month, INDOT said, traffic will only go through the right lane while crews work on the sewers.

  • Superior between Lafayette and Clinton, one westbound lane open.
