POPULATION: 1,452,975

Map of Fenton Current:

Fenton Resides on the Takerath River, with 3 Bridges and 1 Tunnel. Its Major Highway Routes, Roadway 4, Penbescott Freeway, and Rideway 1, Supply the City with Economic Oportunities and more. Paltis International is Also the Largest in the area.

Okay! No More Boring! Fenton Started as a small town, (Obviously) Which was Formerly Called Penbescott. Its Prime Location in the mainland region pushed more and more people into the small town, cramming people up in small places. (where you see Downtown, thats the historic District :). )

Of Course, The City grew rapidly within 30 years from 10,342 to 402,012 Residents, and caused rapid, unplanned development.
The Small bridge far away from the city managed traffic, but unfortunately the First West bridge buckled under pressure,
thus causing the West Bridge Disaster of 1910.

As a Response to the disaster, City hall built the New-Technological Art of the time: The Gartley Tunnel.

The Gartley Bridge was supposed to be replaced by the newly built West bridge in 1936, but it was recommended that they kept it for a little longer.

After a while, The City Steadily built, Starting with the newly famed Rohatheus Built in 1959, it is the tallest in the city currently.

Also built a year later, the Utan Skyway, Provided Rideway 1 to extend through and pass the city. Currently it now is over 50 years old, and is under tremendous pressure from traffic. It is still undetermined wether it should be completely rebuilt or just kept mainained.

The City's Current Layout/traffic.
Roadway 4 is circling the city. it was built in 1964.
Penbescott Freeway was built 5 Years later, as well as the Erpin Bridge, which was built in 1973.
Rideway 1 makes a backwards-L type shape arround the city.
Rideway 6/Roadway 5 travels along the river into the downtown region. it is called Coastal Highway. It was completed in 1979.
only if i had rail lines...

At First it was stated impossible to build a highway in such conditions. the Council completely opposed it, not allowing it over 40 times. Basically, its designer Torin Rakes almost got extracted and banned from the city for challenging the council's Statements until the new mayor allowed him a chance to build it, bypassing the council's votes and permissions. The Coastal Highway was completed and added an aditional 80% releif on city traffic and commute times.
