An intersection between highways, having two or more levels and a series of connecting roadways so that traffic on one highway may pass over or under the other highway without crossing through the line of traffic, and vehicles may pass from one highway to the other while traffic on both highways continues uninterrupted. A common interchange is the cloverleaf.
A section of track or several tracks where one railroad connects with another so trains or individual cars can move from one railroad to the next.
A junction of two or more highways by a system of separate levels that permit traffic to pass from one to another without the traffic streams crossing.
A system of interconnecting roadways that provides for the movement of traffic between two or more highways on different levels.
a junction of highways on different levels that permits traffic to move from one to another without crossing traffic streams
a grade-separated intersection (one road passes over another) with ramps to connect them, as pictured
a track where one railroad receives cars from and delivers cars to another railroad.
A highway intersection allowing traffic to move freely from one road to another without crossing another line of traffic.
System of interconnecting ramps between two or more grade-separated intersecting roadways or guideways.
Junction of two railroads where cars or trains are transferred between them.
A system of interconnecting roadways in conjunction with one or more grade separations, providing for the movement of traffic between two or more roadways on different levels. Compare with intersections and junction.
The system of grade separated ramps connecting two or more freeways, toll roads, or other exclusive roadways, or connecting a roadway to an interstate.
Where two highways meet and intersect.
an interchange is the junction of a freeway and another road. To provide access control, interchanges keep the traffic flowing on the freeway, but there may be some restrictions on the connecting routes. A complete interchange provides for movements in all directions; a partial interchange has some missing connections. There are a wide variety of interchanges, including cloverleads, stacks, single point urban, and trumpets.
A track on which various cars are delivered or received from one railroad to another.
The transfer of cars from one railroad to another at a common junction point.
In the field of road transport, an interchange is a road junction that typically utilizes grade separation, and one or more ramps, to permit traffic on at least one road to pass through the junction without crossing any other traffic stream. It differs from an intersection, at which roads cross at grade. Interchanges are almost always used when at least one of the roads is a freeway, though they may occasionally be used at junctions between two surface streets.
