The owner of the Deer Park Pub in West Fort Wayne says his business is down roughly 30 percent this year. He blames that on the project to re-build the spring street bridge.
For the past year, the city has closed the bridge as crews make way for a new one. In recent months, the intersection of Spring Street and Leesburg Road has been closed, altogether. Those who know the bar is there must drive down a hidden alleyway to access it.
Relief will come soon, however. The bridge and surrounding roads are due to open up on October fourth. The Deer Park Pub is planning a prohibition-themed party to celebrate the end of the era.
