Pic 13 Another hospital. Another awesome looking model. I think SCS is adding these for a reason. That is at least 3-4 I can recall now. NM and Idaho has them. I'd like to think these become functional with Texas because I know Houston is huge in that industry. We just needed a few more locations around the country to be in place to make the industry come to life. I'm keeping my figures crossed. But this building is very nicely done. Despite the truck illegally driving in front of it, lol.

Pic 15 being the steel mill is awesome. I knew SCS couldn't miss that one. That place is freaking HUGE and right off the Interstate. Considering we have that industry, it was a no brainier add.

Pic 16 looks like the Pic Carthoo tried to tease in the ATS teaser thread hinting Colorado was after Utah. That has to be I-70 leaving Colorado as its the only road that is 2 lanes connecting Utah and Colorado.

@ThatWeirdTrucker ikr. It would be nice if they fixed the mountains in SLC.

Photo 16 is not I-70.

It looks kind of like US-40:

Edit: Ignore this. I am wrong.

Oh mama. My two favorite pics........easily. Pic 19 and Pic 20. Look at those bad boy right there...mmm mmm mmm. I am gonna love the feeling of driving thru lush green valleys just as much as driving thru rock formation valleys. These scenes are no different than any other ATS screen shots provided in blogs. They are just full of color, energy and detail. I can see some of us having wrecks in Colorado for sure.

Good thing SCS made the little scenic camera feature. We will need it for Colorado for sure.

@Xaagon SCS's photo has a yellow and a white line on the road's edge which means one direction. The link you gave has two white line which means one lane in two directions. SCS has 2 lanes in the same direction because you see traffic in both lanes going the same way. US-40 has a yellow divider line, I-70 has a white divider line. Not to mention Utah has specific welcome signs at each entry.

This is US-40s entrance sign in closer that your link https://www.google.com/maps/@40.2732292 ... 6656?hl=en

Ah yes, you are correct. I missed that. I didn't remember the interstate median being that wide at that point.

It is I-70:

The thing about the junction of I-70 and CO-82 in Glenwood Springs is that it appears to have been recently reworked in real-life. In Google Maps, the map overlay shows roundabouts and a direct connection from I-70 to CO-82 without having to use 6th Street. When you look at the satellite view, it shows conventional intersections, a new bridge, and the road overlays don't line up with the roads in the image. It kind of hard to tell exactly how SCS made it based on the picture in the blog. The overpass seems to be the new one, but the rest of the intersection looks to be based on the old design.
