There was a big oval-shaped one in South Jordan, Utah, but they're currently in the process of tearing it out and building an overpass for Bangerter Highway.

Thanks for getting back on that, Mr Psychohistorian (or do you just go by Mr Psycho for short?). I half expected you'd forgotten, but you came through. Way to go.

Maybe you should go back to the old skin. It still works there. There's a selection field for that in the bottom left of each page.

Nothing will fix that intersection short of not allowing any turns ever.

Brighton Michigan has a triple (sort of). It is a double on one side of the highway with a single on the other. It is kind of odd because of how the freeway ramps come in.

Us 23 and Lee Road

That'd be a neat thing to see in Cities: Skylines.

Roundabouts are much more common in the UK and unusual shapes are usual.

The magic roundabout in Swindon has an inner and outer roundabout with 5 mini-roundabouts around it. You travel clockwise on the out part and anti-clockwise on the inner, switching directions as you go around the mini-roundabouts.

Other towns have followed this pattern, so it must work!

Pretty standard one, then they stuck no less than eight sets of traffic lights upon it
