FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — A stretch of Parnell Avenue will be closed for a month and a half for an improvement project.
Parnell was originally scheduled to be closed from Coliseum Boulevard to North Clinton Street for 45 days beginning July 5 but work has been postponed until July 12.
The $1.2 million Parnell Avenue Road Improvement Project includes pavement patching, milling and asphalt resurfacing, as well as an extension of the southbound left turn lane. Median reconstruction along with sidewalk and ADA curb ramps and upgraded street lighting will also be included.
During the closure, there will be no access to East California Road from Parnell Avenue, but traffic will be detoured to Paul Shaffer Drive and North Clinton.
