A new traffic pattern takes effect Monday on the Dolphin Expressway.
The new Diverging Diamond Interchange traffic pattern opened shortly before 6 a.m. at the intersection of Northwest 27th Avenue.
MDX officials said they hope the new traffic pattern will help drivers save up to 15 minutes on their commute.
In the DDI, the travel pattern shifts to the left or opposite side of the road under the expressway.
Drivers traveling on 27th Avenue will have to cross over to the left side of traffic as they go underneath the expressway. Then, they'll have the choice to either get on the expressway or continue on. Once drivers pass the expressway, they will have to cross over back to the right and continue driving as normal.
