Update 56 - Brittany River South Bank: 76th Street to 44th Street

Today, we will look at development along the south bank of the Brittany River. Pictures will include development between Baltimore Avenue, 76th Street, Brittany River, and around 44th Street. Also included are some shots of "new" development west of 72nd Street south of Baltimore Avenue.

I have begun construction of the east-west freeway. I built a few interchanges around Jade with RHW, but discovered a lot of limitations that have prompted me to probably use a hybrid of the RHW and Maxis freeways for flexibility in the city.

Also, after construction the loop near Fairchild, I realized the freeway design was really stupid considering if I just went straight across north of Jade around the Marshall Avenue corridor it would cut a few miles off the east-west route and there is really no physical obstructions preventing this route. So now I will go back and rebuild the Jade interchange to be a 4-way interchange and cut the route straight through. The next update will probably deal with this.

Check out the District of Wenzel Street Map to get an idea where we are.

This CJ unlike many others helps to see your city as a whole. The street map is great.
Could you show us a close-up of The Works? I've read all the entries and haven't found it anywhere.

Haha, thanks a lot you guys.

As for The Works (maybe in the future). There are some places in my city that haven't met my standard of showing off yet. I think we will see The Works, though, when a Lakeshore Freeway is built.

I take great pride in showcasing an entire city (region). Originally, I developed a basic map system for myself to remember street names and important places when labeling my pictures, but then I realized that it would greatly aid in tying the whole city together. It really makes it seem like one big place.
