FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — The City of Fort Wayne issued a 12-ton maximum weight limit for the Bluffton Road Bridge on Monday.
Officials say this restriction will remain in place until further notice.
The city says during an annual inspection City Engineers found maintenance concerns and hired an outside bridge inspector to take a closer look.
The findings determined that the weight restriction needed to be in place.
Signs with the new weight limit are now posted and City Engineers have started the process to receive Federal funds for the bridge upgrade.
The bridge posting is expected to last for several years.
There are two suggested detour routes.
