Some of the interchanges along the New Jersey Turnpike are pretty massive, too.

Yeah, for sheer land-intensiveness these are hard to beat. Consistent with Paddington's observation, too.

The E45/E20 interchange in southern Denmark, if counted as one interchange, must by far be the world's largest interchange. It's like a big triangle with each side measuring some 8 kms (5 mi).

I know in Shanghai the biggest one has got to be the Xinzhuang interchange near the south edge of the city, which I measured in Google Maps at 900m from E to W and about the same from N to S. It has 3 freeways entering it - the A4, A8, and A20, as well as a major intracity expressway, with a total of five spokes radiating away from it.

Nah, those are actually 3 interchanges spaced quite far apart. They also have three different names...

Hi all,

Thanks to everyone for the interesting answers.

Israel is a small country with a road system that is modest compared to the others that were mentioned here.

However, we do have two interchanges that can at least be mentioned in the same breath as the ones mentioned above:

The Ben-Shemen Interchange, between Roads 1, 6, and 443. It is not a huge stack (it actually has 3 levels) but it is built on a huge area, as you can see. Sorry about the Hebrew, but it should be obvious what it means:





The Gannot-Hashiva complex just south of Tel Aviv, where Roads 1, 4 and 44 meet. It is two interchanges that without question operate as one; some exits from Road 1 at Gannot (the northern part) enter Road 4 on the Hashiva on-ramps:

Another big interchange (well, actually two). Just a few minutes east of my previous picture, in Manchester. I-84 has a directional-t with I-384 on the bottom, and then another one with I-291 on the top. Totally crazy with lanes all over the place.

At this point, I-84 has 12 lanes, including HOV lanes, and has c/d lanes.

And here is another one, on the opposite side of Greater Hartford, in Farmington, western area. I-84 interchanges with CT route 9 in a half-used stack interchange, probably the only stack in Connecticut. The top half is not used because route 9 was cancelled past I-84 because of opposition.

Huge road network since there is no metro link to the city.

I know, but for many people the Los Angeles metro is coterminous with the city itself.

I am not sure if I am right but are you supposed to include both the length and the width?

I can't believe I forgot my own post: the I-85/GA 316 interchange includes a single-lane offramp to Pleasant Hill Road that's over 2 miles (3.3km) long.

i was checking this topic and wondering about length of all those interchanges...
then i took GE and went to see if Croatia has something to offer
and here are the results

Zagreb SW Exit at Lucko


Zagreb East Exit at Ivanja Reka


nothing special, but still in level with other interchanges that are around 1km in length...

If you pan the map further south would the 427/401 interchange count? There are also exits for Renforth, Carlingview, Eglinton and Hwy. 27 all in between the westbound and eastbound on-ramps.
