Mitchell Junction is a grade separated junction between the A30 and A3076 in Cornwall and is named after village in which it is situated.

It started life a simple T-Junction between the B3280 and the A30 in the centre of Mitchell itself. The B3280 was soon upgraded to Class 1 status, becoming the A3076 in the early 1930's. The layout was soon modified to send north and south bound traffic on the A3076 along adjacent streets within the Village as they were quite narrow and as traffic built up it started to become more congested.

The current arrangement was created when the Mitchell Bypass was built in the early 1990's. Traffic to and from the A30 Eastbound meets the A3076 at a roundabout at the northern side of the bridge. To head to and from the westbound A30, the A3076 now has to TOTSO to follow the former A30 to the east of Mitchell to meet the bypass as the former A30 still takes the through route in the village.

Similar to the adjacent junctions at Summercourt, the junction entry sliproads are simple give way type entries, commonly seen on modern compact grade separated junctions, as opposed to the longer tapered on ramps seen on most grade separated junctions.
