Video: Diverging Diamond Interchange at Jimmy Carter Bridge

The Gwinnett Village CID posted a simulation video of what the interchange at I-85 is expected to look like.

Wondering what the proposed diverging diamond interchange at the Jimmy Carter Boulevard and I-85 bridge will look like?

The Gwinnett Village CID has posted a simulation video of the intersection to give people a sneak peek. Check it out above.

The diverging diamond interchange is expected to improve the traffic congestion in the area. The basic idea is to cross traffic over to the “opposite” side of the road, eliminating hard lefts and easing traffic congestion at these notoriously slow intersections.

What do you think about the diverging diamond intersection? Are you a fan of it, or do you think it'll just cause more issures? Tell us in the comments.

The diverging diamond, though scary at first, does seem to work well on Ashford-Dunwoody at 285. And it's kind of fun driving on the wrong side of the road!

a little nerve wracking to contemplate but will probably be a good thing for the region.
