Southbound Clinton Street Closes Today At 6pm For 6 Months

You may want to leave for work a few minutes early tomorrow if you work downtown.  The 6 month road closure begins tonight at 6PM.   Just like the frustrating times during the Lima expansion, we must all remember….this is intended to improve traffic flow and safety.

Note to Fort Wayne motorists: Southbound Clinton Street closes today at 6 p.m. for reconstruction of the small bridge over Spy Run Creek. This is no short-term fix – it will be closed for six months.

The closing comes, coincidentally, just as work is finishing on the new Martin Luther King Bridge on Clinton. Traffic was only briefly detoured whiled that project was under way. Why the two jobs couldn’t have been coordinated to minimize traffic disruption is a mystery.

The detour for the current closing will send southbound traffic on Clinton a block east to the formerly one-way Spy Run Boulevard, then west on Elizabeth Street back to Clinton.
