Time Corners Contract Approved
Benjamin Lanka from the Journal Gazette reports:
A long-awaited project on Fort Wayne’s southwest side took another step toward reality Wednesday morning.
The Fort Wayne Board of Public Works approved a contract between the city and state regarding the road project to realign the intersections at West Jefferson Boulevard, Covington Road and Getz Road, known as Time Corners.
The contract outlines that the city will pay $567,174 of the $3.4 million project. The rest of the money will come from state and federal sources.
The project will expand the short section of Covington Road between Getz Road and Jefferson Boulevard to allow for traffic in both directions. It currently allows only for westbound traffic. It will also change Covington and Jefferson to a four-way signal. The project also removes the current signal into the Time Corners shopping center and installs a new one farther north.
