Update 12 - South D31 through Apostles Township and St. Paul
We continue south on D31 through the towns of St. Mark, North St. Paul, and St. Paul.

St. Mark, North St. Paul, St. Paul along with St. James, St. Andrew, and St. Peter are little towns in the aptly named Apostles Township.  St. Paul was featured in the fifth update of the journal a couple months ago.  D31 actually bypasses St. Paul, probably not the most realistic path for a highway, and we will only see the outskirts and industrial edge of St. Paul.

It has been a while since I built this area, so it was really enjoyable to move through the area and see the scenic small towns.  I hope you enjoy them and my roadgeekery.  This will be the last major roadgeek update for a while.  The next batch of updates will be full of pictures from the ever expanding Martintown or as it is officially now incorporated as Martin.  As I am writing this, I may just put a sneak preview at the end, we'll see.

I suggest opening in another tab/window the region map of the District of Wenzel, so you can see where exactly we are travelling.

The small hamlet of St. Mark, named after the church at the corner of D31 and Ogden Rd.

North St. Paul is just down the road about a mile.

It features a traffic circle/roundabout as the intersection of three District Highways - D31, D266, and D111.  D111 only exists for a mile.  There really is no explanation for its existence as a District Highway.

Antioch Lutheran Church and cemetery occupies the spit of land between D111 and D31.

Traffic signals at the intersection with Centrailia Road, quite unnecessary at this point in time though as St. Paul development has yet to reach this area.

St. Paul is the second largest community in Martin County behind the county seat and district capital Martin (Martintown).

My attempt to make it appear as if the sun is setting.  After not seeing these pictures for about a week since I prepared them, they actually look pretty good.  What do you think?

That concludes our trip south on D31 through the southern half of Martin County.  I hope you enjoyed the SimCity scenery, farmland, and small towns.  I also hope you find my stab at signage worthy.

The next updates will focus on Martin (Martintown) as the city expands around the Brittany River.  Here is a teaser from what I've been up to.
