Update 37 - Rutland - North Harrison Avenue

Well I said the next update was in the works and here it is! Welcome to Rutland, the name was around from early on and was not influenced by and did not influence the rundown nature of this area just north of Downtown Martin. To say the least, the area is in a little bit of a "rut". As you will see, there are many low income houses and many abandoned lots. Today we will focus on North Harrison Avenue (er,I mean Road, I mislabeled the title of this update!!!!). Harrison Road also carries the designation of County Highway H, and it serves as the north-south axis of the cities street and address numbering. North-south streets to the west of Harrison Road are numbered and those to the east bear names like east-west streets. East-west streets on the west side of Harrison Road are designated "West ***** Street" and those on the east are "East ***** Street".

"The Bowl" - the intersection of Orchard Avenue and Harrison Road named after the depression of land at the crossroads - still home to many farms.

"The Bowl" now a busy intersection surrounded by industry and business and a recycling center.

Thanks for stopping by. Next time we will continue touring Rutland along North 8th Street (N45 - formerly D15). Tell me what you think! Check out the District of Wenzel Street Map to get an idea where we are.

Nothing special really. Just laid out grid and in this area of my city laid alleys and residential zoning...and of course commercial on major arterials and intersections. I take a lot of inspiration from Milwaukee and Chicago and constantly refer to Google Maps and Fresh Logic Studios bird's eye view. In the end, the great custom content really helps make it all look really good.
