The Google Maps images are bit out of date, but it appears that they've implemented half a diverging diamond interchange. US93 traffic appears to run on opposite sides under the freeway, and then make a switch on the north side. Normally in a diverging diamond that crossing would be controlled by a light. Either that light is still to come, or they think traffic isn't heavy enough to warrant one.

I-515 @ Horizon Drive is a full diverging diamond in LV area.

I like the "half diverging diamond" label -- is that a technical term? Whatever you call it, this particular interchange is tricky -- there are multiple uncontrolled crossover points in a very confined area.

But it is true that there is not much traffic!

Last I was through the underpass was backed up and crazy busy. 20 minute wait for a pump at Love's. Not exactly a low price either.
