Well, at any rate, I'd like to take a "detour" and introduce you to the City of Lenox (population ~32,000).

Road map to the immediate vicinity:


As you can see, Lenox and the surrounding valley has one of TDOT's primary highways, Highway 3, running through it. While it is a primary north-south route, it kind of tends more east-west through Lenox, and as it zig-zags through between some of the surrounding foothills.


Overview, looking north:


And no, you do not need to adjust your monitor. That really is green terrain (Columbus, to be precise). Lenox is about 200 miles west of Argentum, in an area that receives much more precipitation.

And a few random pics from around the city:

Downtown, looking toward the west:


Closer in:


Azalea Avenue (Highway 151) where it splits into the Main St/Railroad St One-Way Couplet, with the Sealey Way intersection, facing north. The intersection of Railroad and Sealey is the busiest in the city, recording an peak hour volume of 2600. Two-way traffic is allowed for half-a-block on Main to act as a sort of "left turn lane" onto northbound Sealey.


This is looking west at the Main/Railroad couplet intersecting with Orson Road, near the bridge. Orson Road is a major north-south arterial connecting downtown Lenox to the industrial district. Random fact: Lenox has two Burger Kings, and no McDonald's.


The aforementioned industrial district, facing north. As you can see, it's in a prime location, with access to Highway 3 and a rail line.


Closer in:


The east end of the Main/Railroad couplet (facing west), where it merges to form Hidden Valley Road. (Salad dressing, anyone?)


A shot of the eastern agricultural district. This is looking north along Brinstar Road.


Back along Highway 3, here is its interchange with Tigard Drive, a major surface arterial in the west part of Lenox (facing north). It is where Highway 151 links into Highway 3--151 was formerly the main highway through the region, but became a tertiary route when the Highway 3 freeway bypassed it.


The Azalea Avenue/Tigard Drive intersection, a major commercial hub in western Lenox (facing north).


Tigard Drive to the south of the freeway, going past a residential neighborhood:
