Safety Tip: Diverging Diamond Interchanges

By Team Writer / 3 years ago

Recently as an attempt in the process of being able to reduce the crashes as well as traffic congestion, there are more states that are constructing diverging diamond interchanges. However with this being fairly new it leaves some drivers confused. These intersections help to move traffic in a more efficient and safe manner than traditional intersections.

Key Takeaways:

  • Several states, including Florida and Wisconsin, have recently scheduled events aimed at familiarizing the driving public with how diverging diamond interchanges work.
  • Diverging diamond interchanges help move traffic more efficiently and safely than traditional intersections.
  • DDIs make wrong-way entry onto freeway ramps much less likely.

“Diverging diamond interchanges help move traffic more efficiently and safely than traditional intersections, studies show. They dramatically cut the number of conflict points at which vehicles can collide. DDIs also make wrong-way entry onto freeway ramps much less likely.”
