Routing over LAN

I have two sites that each have a router and switching.  I am going to connect these two sites through a fiber connection.  The one subnet is 10.110.46.0/24 and the other site is 10.110.145.0/24.

 

Each router has a MPLS connection back to the corporate office that is using BGP to route.  Since these sites will be able to connect via fiber I would like to route them over the LAN and not the wan.

 

Do I need to create a new interface on each router. So on the 10.110.145.254 router do I need to create a 10.110.46.X interface.  And on the 10.110.46.254 router do I need to create a 10.110.145.x interface?

 

Once these are created as directly connected routes should they sites start talking to each other over the LAN as opposed to the WAN?

 

Also,  all the switches live in the same VTP domain.

Thanks
