FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) Construction on the first Diverging Diamond in the state started on Dupont Road on Monday morning.
The interchange at I-69 and Dupont Road will be modified from a traditional diamond to what’s called a Diverging Diamond Interchange. INDOT officials said the diamond will improve traffic flow by allowing vehicles to go on the interstate without turning left in front of oncoming traffic.
Watch the video on this article for a demonstration of how the interchange will work once completed.
The project will cost $3.5 million, most of which will come from tax payers’ dollars.
Excavation work on the ramps will last until May and the project is expected to be completed by late October.
