New Highway Suggestion: US 95, Yuma to Ehrenberg

#1 Post by Xaagon » 21 Dec 2016 17:37

Currently, to go from Yuma north you have to go to El Centro, then travel northwest on CA 111, or go all the way east through Phoenix. In reality truck traffic northbound out of Yuma going towards Las Vegas would use US 95 directly out of Yuma, connecting to I-10 just east of Ehrenberg. Also, this would be a natural outlet for El Centro going northeast.

The Blythe to Needles connection on the California side is already there, and US 93 is close enough that the missing US 95 section from Needles to Las Vegas is not as big of an issue, though that addition would be welcome too.

I wouldn't want this to be put ahead of creating new state content, but as revisions get made to the "base" map I would like to see this highway section considered.

Please vote with your preference and reply with any other thoughts. Thanks.

Why stop there? SCS should continue the '95 from Yuma at least to Henderson, and fix the crappy Pre-rescale Las Vegas "East side" while they are at it. Other than time limitations, there's no reason anymore why it can't connect to I-15 (under a different name)

Las Vegas is fine as is just connect US95 from Ehernberg to Yuma. It would save time having to drive to El Centro. 8-)

Las Vegas itself is really great if we look at the downtown section, but highway system is not fine. It is missing important interchange connecting US-93, US-95 and I-5. When traveling from Arizona to Nevada through Las Vegas, you have to go into city and drive through traffic lights. This is not how it should be. Also, US-93 should be connecting to I-5 further north. Due to location and city layout, it is fairly complicated change, and I am afraid that Utah might compromise any mod attempting to fix this area

I guess you mix up Las Vegas Boulevard South aka "The Strip" with Las Vegas Downtown... doesn't matter ;)

Still, it would be great if SCS could improve Las Vegas' interstates somewhat.

Las Vegas is fine as is no room to add anything at 1:20 scale anyways. Time to fix up the map bugs and add more states.
