I think all big cities have interchanges like that.

Here's one here in Milwaukee that was completed a few years ago:

That doesn't look like a spiral :p Though it probably handles much more traffic !

not really an intersection, more of an onramp they did the spiral because the grade would of been to steep in the distance they had, so a circle upwards made it a smaller grade

I would say it not an intersection at all, it's an Interchange!

Intersection versus interchange


There are two different types of junction between roads.

Interchanges are junctions where roads pass above or below one another, preventing a single point of conflict by utilising grade separation and slip roads. The terms motorway junction and highway junction typically refer to this layout.

Intersections do not use grade separation (they are at-grade) and roads cross directly. Forms of these junction types include Roundabouts and traffic circles, priority junctions, and junctions controlled by traffic lights or signals.
