The Mixmaster refers to the intersections of I-235 and Interstate 35 / Interstate 80 in West Des Moines(known as the West Mixmaster) and in Northeast Des Moines, Iowa (known as the East Mixmaster). I have driven through the Eastern version for years, starting when I was a University of Iowa Student and continuing on to whenever I return to Iowa to visit Family.
My Mother views this Intersection with awe in terms of it's turns and traffic. My only issue with it was one winter drive to the airport where I nearly slid off the road. Otherwise, it's all pretty straightforward and the latest construction round has made driving this even easier. This intersection is no MacArthur Maze (Oakland), but for Iowans it might as well be.
