Double crossover diamond interchange with frontage roads

Jorge Alberto Martinez, University of Texas at El Paso


The increase in population has generated an increase in traffic along most cities in the world. Engineers are being challenged to provide mobility to our transportation networks to ensure the delivery of our everyday goods. A new interchange design called the Double Crossover Diamond Interchange is beginning to become widely popular when considering freeway junctions. However, there has not been research about this type of design where frontage roads and through movements exist. The intent of this study is to compare the operational effects of the Conventional Diamond Interchange with a Modified Double Crossover Diamond Interchange that can accommodate through movements along the frontage roads.
