The 10-month closure of the intersection of Rudisill Boulevard and Broadway began July 8.

Motorists approaching Broadway from Bluffton Road will only be able to turn north. The closure is for work to protect the St. Marys, near Foster Park, from sewer overflows.

Because this is a significant intersection that connects to multiple parts of the city, two detour routes will be in place. Those who use the intersection to connect to southwest Fort Wayne, Waynedale or U.S. 27, are encouraged to avoid the area altogether. Signs for this through traffic detour will be at Taylor Street, Clinton Street, Covington Road, Engle Road, Bluffton Road, Lower Huntington Road, Tillman Road and U.S. 27/Lafayette Street.

For those motorists who live or are doing business in the area, a local detour route will include Broadway and Creighton and Fairfield Avenue. Foster Park will remain open, but will only be accessible from the south.
