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


[quote]
There are two different types of junction between roads.

[b]Interchanges[/b] 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.

[b]Intersections[/b] 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.[/quote]
