City’s bicentennial markers to get facelift

Workers will soon begin a facelift on five bicentennial markers in Fort Wayne.

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE)  The city’s five bicentennial markers are getting a fresh look by undergoing $84,000 worth of improvements, in an effort to spruce up the gateways into Fort Wayne.

The Redevelopment Commission approved a portion of that money at a meeting Monday night, so that crews can begin to repair lights and tiles and do masonry and landscaping work. It’s not known when that work will begin.

Commissioners also approved financing to spruce up the rusty railroad overpass near Lindenwood and West Jefferson. That $18,000 update will include painting, lighting, sidewalk repair, cleaning, and the installation of a new sculpture. Work on that should begin in the spring.
