Wakeman Boulevard Project

This project will widen Wakeman Boulevard (Highway 24) from 2 to 5 lanes (4 with center turn lane) between South 6th Avenue and South 22nd Avenue in the Wakeman City Limits. This section of roadway is the busiest in the area, averaging 54,000 trips per day.1

(Here's another link to the current Wakeman map, for your convenience: )

This was the existing segment Wakeman Boulevard, between the intersections with South 11th and 17th Avenues. You can see the Right-of-Way is already plowed under in preparation. (Looking north)

The intersection with 22nd and Wakeman (looking east). Note that 22nd is 3 lanes all the way through now, and on the right hand corner, you can get a glimpse of work beginning on the 22nd Avenue extension.

Also as part of the project, a small segment of South 11th Avenue near Cascadia Community College was widened from 2 to 5 lanes as well.

Hope you enjoyed this latest construction project!

1This is figuring that the values shown in-game are hourly figures. From my own analysis of RL and SC4 data, this appears to be an accurate assumption, but is still mere speculation.
