'''Stack''' – A four-level interchange connecting I-10 and I-17; located west of downtown Phoenix near 19th Avenue and McDowell Road.
 
'''Mini-Stack''' – A four-level interchange linking I-10 to State Route 51 and Loop 202 Red Mountain Freeway; located south of McDowell Road and east of 16th Street.
 
'''North Stack'''– Another four-level interchange, this one is located at the I-17 and Loop 101, north of Bell Road.
 
'''Split'''– The interchange where I-10 splits or merges – depending on your direction of travel – with I-17 near Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. Westbound I-10 splits into lanes that allow drivers to head north on I-17 or continue west on I-10.
 
'''SuperRedTan'''– A multi-tiered interchange in east Mesa where US 60 Superstition Freeway, Loop 202 Red Mountain and Loop 202 Santan meet. SuperRedTan is formed by taking part of each freeway’s name – '''Super'''stition, '''Red''' Mountain and San'''tan'''.
