Old Highway Meets New-Part 2

Sign in to follow this  


Well, as the title of this update indicates, we're back on the site of the Highway 61 realignment project, in South Argentum. It's also the last update with the old terrain mod. Here's the map again from Update 22, just for convenient reference (it hasn't changed any, though some of the stuff from this update was "preemptively" put on there.)


Here's the old Highway 61/Argentum Boulevard interchange. Now you see it . . .


. . . now you don't (and apparently, some errant motorists didn't believe that the interchange wasn't really there anymore).


Work being done to reconnect the old freeway with the new alignment, on a temporary basis.



Temporary onramp from Southbound 61 to Argentum Boulevard


The temporary 61 alignment is now built, though a temporary ramp is still needed to connect Argentum Boulevard to Northbound 61.



The temporary ramp crosses under Caldera Lane before merging onto the new 61 alignment.


An overview of the temporary alignment and interchange. You can see the new alignment being worked on as well.



Grading being done on the remainder of the new alignment, at Wilson Road, which will continue to exist in two separate, disconnected segments.


Caldera Lane, where it meets the old freeway alignment, is temporarily closed. The old freeway alignment will actually be used for the new, "reunified" alignment of Argentum Boulevard (connecting the north and south segments), which will exist as a partial limited access route. It will intersect Caldera Lane at-grade, with a signal.


More re-alignment next time . . .
