FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) -- Fort Wayne received a grant from the state to help improve various sidewalks and streets across the city.
Fort Wayne is one of 214 cities and counties across Indiana that will benefit from Indiana's Community Crossings Initiative.
"These are projects that were already underway, they are continuing. Construction crews have been working throughout the winter," said public information officer Frank Suarez.
One of the places being worked on is the Springwood and Orchard Woods community.
With this grant, they're getting new sidewalks, Curbs, and ADA ramps.
Under the state's program, the money can cover up to 50% of the project.
Fort Wayne received $1 million to make it happen.
Even with the COVID-19 pandemic, Suarez Said City workers are getting the job done.
"They have policies where they are social distancing through different shifts. We've been able to move people where they don't have so many people in a vehicle," Suarez explained.
The Allen County Highway Department will also use this money to resurface several roads in the Southeast.
Specific details for those projects will be released at a later date.
