FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) -- Construction of the new Union Chapel Road I-69 interchange north of State Road 1 is now underway.

Crews plan to close Union Chapel between Auburn and Diebold Roads kicking off construction of the new exit on April 9th.

New roundabouts will be built at the on and off ramps on Union Chapel Road instead of stop lights.

The nearly $14-million project is aimed at easing traffic on I-69 and Dupont Road around the Parkview Regional Medical Center.

The work should be complete this fall.
