INTERCHANGE PLANNING IN A RURAL AREA

MUCH OF THE URBAN PATTERN OF THE FUTURE IS BEING SHAPED NOW ALONG OBSCURE COUNTY HIGHWAYS AND NEAR RURAL TOWNS AND SMALL CITIES IN THE PATH OF THE INTERSTATE HIGHWAY. THIS PATTERN IS NOT A CONTINUOUS STRIP, BUT A SERIES OF NODES CREATED AT THE INTERSECTIONS WITH LOCAL FEEDER ROUTES. THE HIGHWAY INTERCHANGE TODAY IS COVETED AND CONSPIRED FOR BY RURAL LAND SPECULATORS IN VERY MUCH THE SAME WAY AND FOR THE SAME REASONS AS WERE RAILROAD STATIONS IN THE ERA OF THE IRON HORSE. THIS ARTICLE DESCRIBES AN INTERNAL SERVICE ROAD SYSTEM AND SHOWS THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE EXISTENCE OF A MAPPED ACCESS ROUTE. THE INTERCHANGE PLAN FOR MONROE COUNTY, WISCONSIN IS USED AS AN EXAMPLE.
