Feb. 12: The Indiana Department of Transportation is planning an interchange modification at I-69 and S.R. 1/Dupont Road that is unique to this area.

It has a European feel, with traffic being diverted to drive on the left side of the road for the overpass over I-69 and then crossing back over to the right side of the road. It's being called the "diverging diamond interchange". Watch the video to see the traffic patterns.
