FISHERS, Ind. (WISH) - It's a new way to drive in Indiana, a first-of its kind intersection, where drivers have to turn right to go left.
It's happening at one of the busiest intersections in Hamilton County.
The new no-left-turn traffic pattern opened for drivers Monday afternoon at 96th Street and Allisonville Road in Fishers.
Here's how it works: Drivers heading east on 96th Street can no longer turn left and head north on Allisonville Road. Instead, they are asked to turn right, drive two blocks south on Allisonville Road and then make a U-Turn at the first light.
Crews spent much of Monday getting the intersection, the signs and the lights ready to go.
"This is pretty unique, because 55,000 vehicles drive through this intersection a day. You have commercial properties on at least three corners, we felt this was a unique solution for a unique problem," said Fishers Town Manager Scott Fadness.
By 3 p.m. Monday, road crews opened Indiana's first no-left-go-right-u-turn traffic pattern.
Drivers figured it out, but it didn't come naturally.
"Once iIget used to it I am sure it will be fine. I am not used to it. I live back there, this is my first time to do it," said driver Jenny Velasco.
For now, only eastbound traffic on 96th is affected by the no left turn rule. By the end of May, all drivers approaching the intersection will be affected. No one will be allowed to turn left legally.
"I hope it works out. There is an awful lot of congestion down here. If it works, great, because there is an awful lot of traffic in this area," said driver Teresa Alt.
