Diverging Diamond Interchange

A Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI), also known as a double crossover diamond (DCD), is a diamond interchange that crosses traffic to the opposite side of the road across an interchange so vehicles have unimpeded movement onto the freeway ramps. Left-turn movements, which are a typical challenge with standard four-way interchanges, are eliminated with a DDI.
