The environmental performance of an existing service interchange, a CDI, is compared with two other alternative designs, a Diverging Dimond Interchange DDI and a Single Point Urban Interchange SPUI, in terms of fuel consumption, emissions, and traffic operations through microsimulations analysis utilizing PTV Vissim. We are primarily focused on major pollutants, including CO2, CO, and NOx.
