I have to concur with everyone here--this is by far one of the best tutorials I've seen on interchange construction.  The overhead shot with the pieces clearly labeled is great for visualizing things.

On the LEX, search for Shadow Assassin.  It's the first download on the page.

That is a beautiful interchange.
I have been trying over the last few days and find it very difficult.
You have made it look easy.

You placed a normal piece, instead of the on-slope piece. Search better in the TAB ring.

on-slopes are at the end of the TAB ring....

hint: hold <shift> and use tab to cycle thru the rings backwards.

There's no need to use the Avenue Onslope pieces now, as RHW v 3 is out, so you can use the El-RHW-4, although the sunken underpass bit will have to be one tile wider on each side.
