Didier: Downtown traffic an "absolute cluster"

DAVE GONG | The Journal Gazette

One Fort Wayne City Councilman described ongoing construction projects in downtown Fort Wayne as an "absolute cluster."

Councilman Tom Didier, R-3rd, noted ongoing difficulties motorists have maneuvering Harrison and Calhoun streets, as well as Washington and Jefferson boulevards.

"In the aspects of the construction, you cannot get around downtown,"  Didier said Tuesday. "I'm going to be the devil's advocate here and say hopefully they get this done quickly."

However, Didier praised improvement work to East State Boulevard, stating that it's taken nearly a decade to get those improvements moving.
