|Before: The subdivision's road just stops. That house next to|
car will have to be moved for the new intersection.
There will soon be an addition to the layout (read more about the whole project here), and so it's time to finish the roadwork. Unlike real life, extending a road and creating a parking lot had no environmental impact.
To make room for a new intersection, I just moved a house over, and for the parking lot relocated the potted trees (if only it were thus in real life).
|The new road, ready to travel.|
So what's new? I extended the road on off the board, creating another railroad crossing. When I originally laid out the road, I wasn't sure what would go there, which is why I left it blank. I also created a new intersection and added a parking area.
For what? Stay tuned for Part 16!
|The new intersection and parking lot. There are very good|
reasons why it's the shape it is, as you'll soon see.
