The Diverging Diamond Interchange is a unique roadway design that requires traffic on the intersecting non-freeway road to briefly drive on the opposite side of the road by crossing at signalized intersections, allowing a free flow of traffic onto the interstate. This design helps traffic move more quickly and efficiently, reduces congestion, and increases safety. See attached graphic.
