The urban-interchange design is a derivative of diamond interchanges. It moves more traffic through the interchange because it is arranged so left turns can be made simultaneously by traffic moving in opposite directions. Vehicles do not have to stop twice as they do many times on diamond interchanges. The urban interchange handles more traffic than a diamond interchange without taking up the amount of right-of-way needed to accommodate a higher-volume cloverleaf. This article discusses the urban interchange that is planned for the intersection of Eucalyptus Avenue and future Interstate 215, designed to run through Riverside, California. Groundbreaking is scheduled for 1990 and the intersection should enter service in 1992. The design will handle 6500 to 7100 vehicles in peak traffic.
