Update 15: H24 & Jordan Ave Construction

So I just realized that I forgot to include update 15 in the CJ section, so here it is!

So we're taking a minor detour from our route and visiting a construction site on H24. It's not exactly the construction style you'd see like in Tarkus's excellent CJ Tarkusian CIties, but more of how the project would progress in the most bare-bones way (at least there's dirt later on).

This interchange has been a bottleneck for Jordan Ave (running N/S here) and isn't exactly the best interchange in the first place (although the reasoning for the loop ramps was to increase the space for commuters to change lanes before the Kaoi Mega Interchange (H24 x H27S (toll) x H424 (Capital Beltway) x H17).

Trees and soundwalls cleared away

Ramp foundations and Jordan Ave widening. Also extending Firing Rd (the TLA-7 in the bottom corner) to intersect.

We'll now focus on the interchange itself. Asphalt has already been laid for the temporary ramps (and dirt now exists)

Temporary overpass for H24 being built. Old ramps have been disconnected and the temp ramps are in place

The area was shut down for a while as they tore down the old overpass and finished the temporary overpass, resulting in

Overpasses for H24 completed

This is far from done, as you can tell. The temporary ramps will be moved again to make space for the actual interchange, and we'll fix up the rest.
