INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Indiana's most famous 2-mile oval is getting a traffic circle.

The Speedway Redevelopment Commission says it will turn the intersection in front of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway into a roundabout next summer.

WRTV-TV reports the $14 million project will connect 16th Street with Crawfordsville Road and Main Street. However, Georgetown Road will be cut off from the intersection and come a dead end.

Commission Executive Director Scott Harris says the roundabout will make the intersection more functional, easier to use and safer.

Speedway President Doug Boles says the track hopes the roundabout improves the flow of traffic going to the venue.

Most of the construction will start after next year's Indianapolis 500.
