The interchange improvements include the design of a diverging diamond interchange (DDI), which will significantly reduce delay on Pine Ridge Road, increase the storage capacity of the I-75 southbound off-ramp, and reduce the number of conflict points to improve overall safety for all users. The DDI also offers the ability to accommodate future traffic volume growth.  Proposed improvements are located within the limited access right-of-way.
