Directional T interchanges use fly/over/underpass ramps for both connecting and mainline segments. They require an average amount of land and costs. Cloverleaf interchange is typically a two-level, four-way interchange where all turns across opposing non-directional loop ramps handle traffic.

The diamond interchange is economical in use of materials and land than other interchange designs. Basketweave interchange is commonly found on highways using a collector/express system of running collector-distributor lanes. Trumpet interchanges are used where one highway terminates at another highway.
