FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — The next phase of the Bass Road reconstruction project is set to begin, the Allen County Highway Department announced Thursday.
During this phase, Bass Road will be widened from Thomas Road to Hillegas Road, a center turn lane and curbs will be added and a roundabout will be constructed at the intersection of Bass and Thomas.
Construction of a new storm sewer has already started and will run the length of the project.
Beginning Monday, March 8, Bass Road will be closed from just west of Thomas Road to Hillegas Road.
The closure is scheduled to run until the early part of November.
Barricades will be placed on Thomas Road notifying of the closure.
The marked detour route will be Kroemer Road/Haeman Road to Leesburg Road to Hillegas Road.
The multi-phased Bass Road project will eventually bring a variety of improvements to the highway extending from Hillegas Road through Scott Road.
