South of Hartford, Ct, I-91, I-691 and Ct 15 came together in this interchange:

Here's a fairly large interchange with I-91 and Ct 9:


Here's where Ct-8, Ct-25 and Ct-15 come together:

Well, my original question was: where is the biggest interchange "in terms of its length - how far you can drive and still be on it, and in terms of the area that it occupies"

This means that if it's long and thin then it still counts.

So, which is the biggest we've found so far?

M6/M42 junction is ~6.5km driving through on the M6.

More certain as being one interchange, you can drive over 4km (on the M61) at Worsley Braided Interchange (from where the A666(M) to Bolton slip goes off to the merge with the A580).

The interchange mazes around the Pentagon are pretty big too.

Yeah that is a huge spaghetti junction, here's some pics

Moscow has two freeway ringroads. The ringroad to which you are referring is just a big boulevard.

Where's that boundary, when an interchange actually stops being... an interchange? I think there's a limit as of what we consider to be an interchange and what we don't consider to be an interchange any more. So the largest interchange would be the one just under the limit we have set. Therefore I think it's more interesting seing complicated interchanges, rather than long ones.

This Ankara one is also pretty big, and it's even unused.

if interchange means "two big autobahns getting one" -> this happens just in Vienna .... the things i have above is "entry / exits" of autobahns
I see the different colours in this pic, its a project?
That road with the "rotonda" is under construction?
