FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – INDOT officials said the northbound ramp at Union Chapel Road on I-69 opened up Wednesday before 10 am.

This was the final step to the Union Chapel Rd. and I-69 project that started in Spring 2012.

The project consisted of putting in new roundabouts along Union Chapel Rd. between Diebold Rd. and Auburn Rd. Road crews also made improvements to the overpass on Union Chapel Rd.

“We’ve been waiting for it to open for quite awhile because we go north quite a lot,” said Stacey Salmon.

Road crews were seen painting directions on the road and putting in new signs Wednesday afternoon.

“It should be nice once they get all finished. If I figure out how to do the roundabout,” said Donal Salmon.
NewsChannel 15 caught one car going down the wrong way getting off the highway because of the misunderstanding of the roundabouts.
INDOT is also working on putting in a roundabout on Union Chapel Rd. at Auburn Rd. That intersection is closed off until February 2014. INDOT said if weather permits, the project could be done as soon as December.
