Yeah I talked about it a few pages back once I say the Steam page. This portion in this pic has to be in. KnuteOle pretty much mentioned that last discussion. We still don't know if it connects to I-84 or how much of I-184 comes to us. https://www.google.com/maps/@43.6177937 ... 8192?hl=en

The highlighted snap shot below is the portions that is 100% in. The rest is a 50/50 shot. That road is technically US-26/US-20. I-184 drops off at the interchange with US-26/US-20. So a few things could happen:
  • I-184 cuts off at US-26/US20 and we can't access it
  • we get I-184 to I-84 but no US-26/US-20 to ID-55
  • we get all the above connections
  • we get US-26/US-20 up that that point but can only access it via Broadway as it does connect to I-84

@flight50 the Albertsons Stadium is at Exit 54 and ID-55 is at Exit 46. So... I don't think I-84's getting much Boise.

I don't understand? We only have one Boise exit. Doesn't seem like we're not getting I-184...

@ThatWeirdTrucker. We have no idea yet. US-20 is a must and almost obvious. So they gave us that and revealed that one. The other if there are more, really should be a mystery imo. I am willing to bet we get another though. I am keeping my fingers crossed for the Overland and Cole Rd exit. I'd honestly much rather have this than I-184. At least this intersection can bring prefabs to deliver to. There are quite a few options if we get this exit. If we get I-184, they more than likely have to skip Overland due to scale issues and also due to scale, we can't get off I-184 until we get to US-26/US-20. That by passing a lot of trucking to retail. In real life, that distance is 3.7 miles from I-84 to US-26/US-20. In ATS that could be 1 mile if the city is built to 1:3 like people state ATS cities are built to. No room to do anything with that stretch of road.

I am sure SCS maximizes the entries into downtown Boise though. I am going with 3 max. US-20 from ID-55, Broadway and something in between ID-55 and Broadway. Overland/Cole just makes the most sense to me as its the most truck friendly populated exit in Boise.

Yeah. Other than that Boise's looking real nice. Met my expectations. Hoping to see a few more Boise exits though.

It's really nice to finally see Boise, and it definitely looks great. Can't wait to play the DLC soon.

If I recall there was an non-blog announced update of photos on Steam for Washington only a few days before the release date was declared.

Nice, maybe next week more releasing news :p

I saw Picture 6 of 8 , the junction of US 20 and US 26. Does that mean we get both?
