The rapid advancement of urban transportation in modern China has driven urban economic developments. However, the progressively congested traffic conditions have affected the productivity and daily life of the people. To mitigate the congestion problem, necessary road designs should be implemented along the highways, for example highway interchanges. The application of highway interchanges in past cases have proven to effectively avoid traffic flow conflicts, reduce highway traffic congestion, and reduce traffic accidents, this is conducive to ensuring the safety and efficiency of the highway. In order to improve the safety and convenience of urban road traffic, this paper analyzes the strategy of using interchange ramp route designs for highway traffic.
