This is where Diamond Street in [[Chinatown, Algonquin|Chinatown]] intersects with Albany Avenue, immediately following through and continuing straight down Diamond Street is where it turns into the [[Broker Bridge]], and Broker-Dukes Expressway. If you are coming the opposite way and are going away from the Expressway and the bridge, going straight on [[Diamond Street]] will take you through Chinatown. Making a right takes you north to [[Lower Easton]] and northern districts. Turning left takes you south to [[The Exchange]] until Albany Avenue ends when it intersects with [[South Parkway]].

[[Hickcock Street]] (Exit 3) , [[Sundance Street]] (Exit 4), [[Tutelo Avenue]] (Exit 5) and [[Carson Street]] (Exit 6) connect eastern Broker neighborhoods and the expressway. These intersections enable you to access the eastern areas like [[South Slopes]], [[Schottler]], [[Beechwood City]] or even [[Downtown Broker]] and [[Outlook]] conveniently from the expressway. These intersections are guided by traffic lights, making the traffic hinder.

|[[Broker Bridge]]
   
This part of the Broker-Dukes Expressway probably was a part of [[Mohegan Avenue]], which is currently divided into two parts - near the Burger Shot in [[Beechwood City]] and [[Firefly Projects]]. There are some old avenue remains underneath the expressway between Carson Street and Tutelo Avenue. Being upgraded to an expressway, it explains the presence of these frequent intersections.

When you reach the beginning of Crockett Avenue finally, it leads you through Firefly Projects already.

The next light after Sundance Street is Tutelo Avenue, where the road curves to make you have to travel northward on Tutelo. Tutelo Avenue is on the eastern edge of Beechwood City.
 
 
'''6. Carson Street Intersection'''
 
 
The next light after Tutelo Avenue is Carson Street, which you can only travel west. Carson Street can be easier identified when you come across a [[Burger Shot]] at the Intersection. Carson Street runs parallel with the [[Algonquin-Dukes Expressway]], and can lead you to central Schottler, including the medical center.
 
 
'''7. Saratoga Avenue Intersection'''
 
 
The last light is the Saratoga Avenue Intersection, allowing you only to travel North, Saratoga leads you to exits and entrances to the [[Algonquin-Dukes Expressway]], and beyond leading you Willis.
 
 
'''8. FIA- Francis International Airport'''
 
 
As the expressway begins to become a highway form once more, the next exit takes you to the airport loop which encompasses the FIA parking lot. From the Oval you have access to the terminal, parking lot, LTA station, Willis, a police department, an entrance back to the BDE (Broker Dukes Expressway) North, as well as entrance to the ADE (Algonquin-Dukes Expressway) West, which also leads to BDE South.
 
 
'''9. ADE- Algonquin Dukes Expressway'''
 
 
Only directly accessible from southbound BDE, northbound travelers would either need to use the Saratoga Avenue Intersection to get to the Algonquin Dukes Expressway, or have to go 3/4 of the way around the airport loop to the entrance onto the ADE. From the ADE a direct exit to the BDE South is provided, to get to the BDE north either around the Airport Loop, or using the Saratoga Avenue exit to the Saratoga Avenue Intersection.
 
 
'''10. Meadows Park'''
 
 
The last exit before the road ends is an exit to Meadows Park accessible from both ways, and with entrances to both ways. The exit forms Cleves Avenue which runs through a small portion of Meadows Park before running through Willis.
 
 
'''11. Dukes Boulevard'''
 
   
Not long after the Meadows Park Exit an intersection occurs with Hewes Street, which afterward the Expressway becomes Dukes Boulevard. Continuing on the Dukes Boulevard will take you through East Island City, Cerveza Heights, and then to Downtown Broker. If you make a left on Hewes Street you go into Meadows Park, and eventually reach the [[McReary]] household. If you make a right you go through northern Steinway where you intersect the Dukes Bay Bridge (toll road).-->
