I think all big cities have interchanges like that. Here's one here in Milwaukee that was completed a few years ago:

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.

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