FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - On Tuesday, October 11, South Anthony Boulevard between Wayne Street and East Washington Boulevard will temporarily close, according to a release from City officials. A northbound detour will use Maumee Avenue, Coliseum Boulevard, and Lake Avenue. A southbound detour will use Lake Avenue, Coliseum Boulevard, and Washington Boulevard.

Weather permitting, the closure will last around 70 days. Berry Street and Anthony will remain open during the construction.

Crews will be working on a project to keep combined sewage out of the Maumee River. City officials say, every year, nearly 31 million gallons of combined sewage flows from an outfall near the Anthony bridge into the river. The project will redirect the sewage to the Water Pollution Control Plant for treatment.
