Infrastructurist.com compiled a list of 23 types of interchange designs. According to that guide, our interchange is a ‘Stack’ design:

“The Stack – A vertically layered arrangement of highways and connecting elevated ramps. The number of levels varies and go as high as six (though three and four are more common). Stacks are expensive to build but very efficient for high traffic volumes”
