History[edit | edit source]
In the initial version of American Truck Simulator, Interstate 5 had a TOTSO north of Redding as it intersected with Churn Creek Road at a cloverleaf interchange. US 395 began at an at-grade four-way junction with Churn Creek Road and headed east towards Nevada, while SR 299 began at a diamond interchange with Interstate 5 on Cypress Avenue and headed west to Eureka.
In update 1.5, which changed the map scale from 1:35 to 1:20, Interstate 5's TOTSO was removed as its route was straightened. Churn Creek Road was truncated from the cloverleaf interchange to Hartnell Avenue, as Interstate 5 intersected there with a new freeway section of SR 299, which began at an at-grade three-way junction with Market Street and ended to the east of a new diamond interchange with Victor Avenue. From there, SR 299 headed east towards Nevada on the previous route of US 395. The previous section of SR 299 in Redding was redesignated as SR 44.
In update 1.35, SR 299 east of the at-grade three-way junction with Market Street was redesignated as SR 44, as the junction became an at-grade four-way junction and SR 299 was moved to a new section of Market Street and Lake Boulevard, of which on the former a garage was added and on the latter a diamond interchange with Interstate 5. East of Interstate 5, SR 299 headed east to Alturas, passing a new Deepgrove harvest site. The previous section of SR 44 was undesignated.
In update 1.41, the roads around Redding were updated. This resulted in the rest areas just outside the city on the western and southern sides to be removed, the weigh station to the south being moved closer to Redding, and the truck stop to the south being moved further south.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Before 1.35 release, in the blog post from SCS called New Road Connections, it was quoted that a Truck Dealer would be added, but at the final launch of the update, no dealership was added. It is not currently known if Redding will have a Truck Dealer in the future.
