Update 09 - Portland Township Travelling on D67, D42, and D31
Here is my first stab at roadgeekery in this MD. I've done a few drive-thrus like this before in my Cambellsport, Rabourn, and Sessquenna regions, but in the District of Wenzel I will try to go really in depth with signs (down to speed limits, loose gravel, etc.) I credit dfnva's roadgeekery style.
Just a note on these first few updates, especially this one. As you'll see in this update, the signs are NOT uniform since I pretty much experimented on each picture, until I found this great site with all the U.S. standard highway signage that I can use as templates (only one picture of this update reflects that discovery though. To explain the non-uniformity in SimCity world, it is like real life how early highway signage did not have uniformity. Even when I do get some uniformity it will still leave room for improvement to current standards. I've already started work on the next update, and I like what I'm seeing and I hope you do.
On this update we will explore Portland Township, not as exhaustively as we did the previous townships, though there are more pictures (something I will try to cut down on next update because many of them are boring I think). I suggest opening in another tab/window the region map of the District of Wenzel, so you can see where exactly we are travelling.
We start our tour at Wilderness Tavern in the Township of Charlotte. We will travel south on D67 - Jade Plank Road.
After a few miles of farms we reach the junction with D42 - Fremont Rd. We will turn left and travel east on D42 towards Martin.
Eleven miles to Martin.
We must turn right at Anna Rd to continue following D42 south for 1/2 mile.
We must turn left again to follow D42. If we continue straight south we can follow D230 to Fairchild and Lexington, two very small hamlets. Traffic travelling north on D230 must yield to D42 traffic.
The last sign picture I made where I finally found some standard sign pieces
About 100 people live in Kinsman, but the town has not yet been incorporated as a village or city.
As the sun goes down we reach the small city of Anchor, the crossroads of D42 and D31. If we continue east on D42 we will pass through the towns of Henne Park and Rutland before passing just to the north of Martin. However, we will turn south on D31.
South D31 will take us through the Village of Hohler and then the cities of Hawthorne and St. Paul.
Once again we approach D230. If we turn right (West D230) we can travel through Lexington and Fairchild back to D42. If we turn left (East D230) we can travel towards Martin. D230 redirects south at Trinity Rd, but if we continue straight the road becomes North Ave. We will continue straight on South D31 into Brittany Township.
We will continue south on D31 into Brittany Township and maybe take D140 west and then D67 into Hawthorne Township, but mostly farms, haha.
