As I noted yesterday, I am going to be taking a look at the extension of highway 180 and the effect it is having on agriculture. All you see below can easily be found on google maps, I'm just putting it in one place so it's easier than switching back and forth between the aerial and satellite imagery.
We begin at 180 and just east of Temperance (Locan pictured), which was built only a few years ago, and from there move east.
You'll note the highway goes from farmland...to more farmland. No urban area in sight, at least not yet. Once the developers see all those pretty off-ramps, subdivisions will be sprouting up like weeds.
2009: Locan to Dewolfe
2009: Dewolfe to Leonard
2010: Dewolfe to Leonard
2009: Leonard to Highland

Is there more? Oh yeah... a lot more.
