Statement issued Thursday by the city of Fort Wayne:
For driver and pedestrian safety, Harrison Street between Jefferson Boulevard and the Botanical Conservatory parking lot will be closed to all traffic Wednesday, March 17 through May 14, weather permitting, to construct the walkway between the new Courtyard by Marriott and the Indiana Hotel.
Drivers will be able to access to the Harrison Square parking garage, on-street parking and the Botanical Conservatory lot from the south. Harrison Street will be open to two-way traffic between Douglas Avenue and the walkway construction site. Traffic flow on Douglas is unaffected by the closure.
During the closure, the north gate on Jefferson and the right field gate on Douglas – between the Lincoln Event Center and the Appleseed Picnic Pavilion – will be open for pedestrians 7 a.m. to dark on non-game days and 7 a.m. to three hours prior to the start of the game when the TinCaps are playing at home.
