Random Roadgeekery

@Fox: Good question. Probably several thousand to 20k a day max, not counting tourist season(When demand for rail goes up in the whole region).

@vivapanda:I have finished the full system by now, and will reveal the map in the next update.

@JGellock:Thanks for the suggestion. The only reason why it's 100% el-rail is to prevent at-grade intersections(Which are highly discouraged on the island) and increase public safety.

Well, sorry for not updating lately: RL has been hard(Does laziness count? :P)

But, got two random interchange pics for you today.

This interchange is located in Mountain View, where the A2 splits off from the A3(Later, the A3 ends at the A2). Going straight is known as the "Chafkon Scenic Bypass" because it offers good scenery, but on the other hand, you have to go across 3 bridges, a tunnel, and there are no towns along that route. The A2 is the longest highway on the island.

And the other photo is a interchange located somewhere on the island. First person to guess where this is located may get a free prize(Hint 1: UC Highways numbers go up from West to East, and South to North).

See you next time!

I like the signs.
If you could make costum BATs and place them in your city. And also I personally prefer the european version.
Hope to see more of your nice city.

Hmmm. I wouldn't say it isn't realistic, but I might say it isn't commonplace. I have seen something similar with a roundabout at the end of an exit ramp in NY state. I might say out in the sticks (like this probably is), the designers would more likely go with an overpass rather than dig. But, the best part is that it's a game and you can make interesting stuff like this. At any rate, the update is very cool. Love the road signs and exit designs. I like to follow the arrows in my heads. One question I have is why is A3 West described differently for drivers coming from A2 versus drivers already on A3?

In Wisconsin, many off ramps are switching to roundabouts instead of 4-way intersections. Anyway, great job!
