Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI)

See also: Diverging Diamond Interchange article on Wikipedia.

DDI Example Dupont.png

Diverging diamond interchanges (DDI) are a type of diamond interchange in which the two directions of traffic cross one another on each side of a limited-access roadway. A DDI may pass over or under the limited-access roadway.

This type of interchange is unusual, in that it requires traffic to briefly drive on the opposite side of the road from what is customary for the jurisdiction. However, the design of the Diverging Diamond Interchange controls the driver's line of sight to ensure the cross-over action feels natural and goes unnoticed.

Segment Directionality

Flow of traffic within a Diverging Diamond Interchange

All ramp and surface street segments are set as one-way. If you are creating a DDI along a road which is not divided, divide the road, first. [link to how to wiki on properly divide the road]

At-Grade Intersections

The two

Junctions

As with all at-grade intersections in Waze, all DDI at-grade intersections are modeled with junction points, including the two signaled intersections where opposing directions of traffic "cross over" each other.

Turn Restrictions

All restricted turns within a DDI (displayed by using Shift+Z).

Overview

Disable the TWO turns from one-way segments to the segments carrying traffic the opposite direction at both inner surface road intersections, for a total of four disabled turns.

Outer Surface Road Intersections:

DDI Example Dupont - turn restrictions - outer.png

Disable the SINGLE turn from the one-way segment carrying traffic exiting the DDI to the one-way segment carrying traffic entering the DDI at both outer surface road intersections, for a total of two disabled turns.

Inner Surface Road Intersections:

Elevations

Elevations are set relative to the limited-access road passing over or under the DDI, with all segments that connect at at-grade intersections having identical elevation.
