This update is over 3 weeks in the making. I don't know why it took so long...

Today's update is another construction project (I promise to lay low on those for a while XD)

The area between the Great Southwestern Road, Route 6 and I-1 has always been a tricky thing to work with, mostly because of the road layout. It was rather awkward. Just take a look for yourself.

The west side of I-1 is served by two tiny 2 lane ramps, and to get from one side of I-1 to the other, you have to get on the freeway. Surely this wouldn't be acceptable for a major road out of the capital. So, as does often happen in the Commonwealth, plans were made to improve this.

Here is the original layout and the planned layout right below that.

And the important middle bit, the construction.

Meanwhile the Rt 6 realignment has already finished.

Enjoy!

Nice transportation layout. However, did development just boom after the construction was done? There seems to be a new high school and everything.. :)
