MoDOT dedicated the new diverging diamond interchange at Range Line and I-44 in Joplin today. MoDOT Director David Nichols tells News Talk KZRG he's happy with the finished product.
"It's a unique type of interchange that's been used in Europe for a number of years. I applaud our engineers for seeking out methods of increasing safety and the efficiency of traffic."
Nichols says the unique design is safer for drivers getting on and off the Interstate, and helps traffic flow more smoothly.
