Leaders of the Businesses on Broadway association, City Community Development and Public Works staff, and 5th District Councilman Geoff Paddock celebrated the completion of the Broadway railroad overpass beautification project today. The overpass is located between Taylor Street and Creighton Avenue.
The project included painting of the overpass, signage on both the north and south sides of the overpass, and walkway and lighting upgrades. The upgrades were recommended as part of the Front Door Fort Wayne Plan, which is a 10-year plan to transform and beautify the City’s primary corridors and gateways. The plan was developed with input from a 14-member citizen advisory committee and was adopted by City Council in June 2012.
Members of the Businesses on Broadway group worked with Councilman Paddock and officials from Community Development and Public Works to make the project a reality. Design Collaborative provided design and construction management. Contractors included Schenkel Construction and CertaPro Painting.
