FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) The Board of Public Works will soon be accepting bids for the gateway and landscaping installation at a roundabout near downtown Fort Wayne.

The roundabout connects Ewing Street, Fairfield Avenue, Superior Street and Wells Street. The roundabout is part of a $4 million project, including lane changes at Ewing Street and Fairfield Avenue.

The roundabout, also called Superior Circle, will feature a piece called “City” by local artist George Morrison. The piece highlights a different perspective of Fort Wayne’s skyline from each point of view in Superior Circle.

The Board of Public Works will hear bids May 19 for three parts of the project’s installation:

  • Rough grading, foundation installation and gateway installation
  • Lighting and electrical
  • Finish grading and landscaping

According to a release from the City of Fort Wayne and the Board of Public Works, the project will serve as a gateway to the Riverfront District and the Wells, Fairfield and Ewing corridors.

The art is expected to be complete and installed by October.
