Thank you for commenting and suggesting ideas for my highway project!
The votes are in... the highway which was suggested the most was : The RHW-4!
After years of planning and debating, construction of Highway 12 began on June 4th 1955. The highway would take 4 years to complete and would open on January 15th 1959. But you're going to have to wait until the next chapter to see that. The highway stretches for a total of 1056 Kilometers.
The old White River Bridge is soon going to be demolished to make way to a new bridge once the highway is complete.
In this picture, you can see the construction of the overpass linking Main St. to the highway.
You can see here the entire construction site passing Whitevale and the airport.
The highway wasn't the only thing going on in Whitevale. In 1956, traffic was getting so contested on the old 2-lane road so an extra lane was added to North St. making it a 3-lane road. This helped lower congestion by more than 40%.
Also, the recently released NAM update changed the way the diagonal curves looked like. They look much better than the default Maxis ones.
In 1957, two of the oldest building in Whitevale were going to be demolished to make way for a new mid-rise office building.
You'll just have to wait to see that too!
This is Whitevale at the end of 1957. The city now has a population of about 18,000 people.
I'm sorry to say and I really don't want to offend anyone but I really don't like the new Simtropolis City Journals section. There a some features I like enjoy more than the old version but I prefer the old one better. Some of the problems with the new CJ section are : The side bar on the right side cuts out about 50 pixels from all pictures, I find the City Journals page to be quite disorganized compared to the old version and I really wish the description could be seen on your CJ box. As I said at the beginning, I do not want to offend any Simtropolis members. These are just some of my opinions and I hope some improvements can be made in the future.
Well, that's it for now.
Stay tuned for more about Whitevale!
