Residents Asked for Input About How to Make North Anthony Boulevard More Bicycle and Pedestrian Friendly

The City of Fort Wayne is inviting residents to share their ideas for how North Anthony Boulevard can be more bicycle and pedestrian friendly.

Residents have two ways to provide input. First, they can visit a workshop on Monday, October 12, 2015, 6-8 p.m. at Lakeside Park Pavilion #2, 1401 Lake Avenue. Or, residents may stop in at Lakeside Pavilion #2 any time October 12 – October 15, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., to visit with consultants working on the project.

The consultants will examine options for North Anthony Boulevard from Niagara Drive to Crescent Avenue. Ideas that may be considered include trails, protected bike lanes and bike lanes. This section of North Anthony has been identified as a key corridor for improvements in the Bike Fort Wayne Plan. It serves as an important route for northeast side bicyclists to travel to and from downtown.

Recommendations for the project will be presented on Wednesday, October 14, 2015, 6-8 p.m. in the Lakeside Park Pavilion #2. Residents can review the recommendations and provide further input before plans are finalized.

Engineering for the project is expected to take place in 2016. Construction would begin in 2017.
