FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) -- The Division of Public Works announced a series of Open House opportunities for residents to view and make suggestions to the final design of the State Boulevard Project.

The Division of Public Works says they are focused on building a street that will improve flood control, traffic flow and pedestrian and motorist safety, while preserving the historic aspects of neighborhood streets.

Preliminary designs are rendered so that residents can have a better idea of what the street could look like. Over the past four years, meetings were held to gather citizen input for the designs. The designs are included in the gallery to the right of this article and are not final.

Over the next few weeks, the Division of Public Works will hold Open House sessions to gather further feedback from residents. This will allow residents to examine designs, talk to staff members and make suggestions for the final plans.

Residents can drop by anytime during the two-hour Open House. Below is information about location and time of the Open Houses:

February 25 - 5-7 p.m.
