Industry exits
« on: September 13, 2017, 09:01:32 PM »

We have an industry exit on I-20 next exit down from mine:

https://www.google.com/maps/@32.5465458,-92.7620613,0a,75y,274.46h,90.77t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1s8X6f-SelHELFWZ_PKl20UQ!2e0 Check out I-20 Shared via the #StreetView app

I know somewhere on I-10 in the Lake Charles/Sulfur area is an exit listed as "Sulfur Industries" (can't remember the exit number).

Are there other Industry exits out there anywhere?

Cline Avenue (IN-912): https://goo.gl/maps/gJuy2t3xpf92
Primarily used for the steel mill, but does have other access.

Does NASA Goddard count as an "industry"?

I was going to suggest the CIA, but that's another in the "primarily" or "for the most part" category...

In MA, I-495 Exit 23C was built specifically for an office park.  And in RI, I-295 Exit 5 was created specifically for the RI Resources Recovery Plant. And several exits on I-890 in Schenectady were created for the GE Plant.

I-180 in IL was built for a Steel Factory, that closed anyway...

Is this what you have in mind (U. S. Steel Gary Works exit from Indiana Toll Road)?

Out in Reno, NV...

From what I can tell, the road was built originally by private developers, for an industrial park (now anchored by Tesla). NV took it over and expanded, apparently

I-94 in Dearborn, MI -- exit 208 is a spur road into the Ford Motor Company plant, although from the freeway it's signed only as the exit to Schaefer Road.

I used to pass that exit all the time running between Monroe and Minden or Shreveport. Always thought it was actually a town called Industry.

There's a whole slew of exits on CA 60 for the City of Industry.  Ironically, that's almost precisely what it is; the city government (what there is of it) consists of a council elected from meetings of firms located within city limits (if you don't show up, you won't get elected -- or your concerns won't be heard!).  Only about 300 people actually live within the city limits (all in a few square blocks at the western end of town near Whittier); they're invited to council meetings as well, but rarely show up (the city "piggybacks" on neighboring school and utility districts and is policed, under contract, by L.A. sheriffs).  It's also the strip-club capital of greater Los Angeles, since there's really no one in city government that objects to such activity (some actually consider those places to be a localized "perk" for employees).  When I owned a OEM speaker design/assembly business in San Dimas in the late '90's and early '00's, I had my cabinetry made in the City of Industry, and got the "skinny" on how the city operated from the owner of the cabinet shop, who had been there since the mid-70's; his father-in-law, who owned the company before him, was on the city council for a couple of years around 1980.  As incorporated cities go, it is certainly an anomaly -- extends almost 15 miles east-to-west through the Walnut Valley, centered on the UP rail main line -- but only averaging 1.5 miles north-to-south.

Many people think that. When you take the exit, there is a guide sign that points you to Simsboro.

Copying my description from the "isolated exits" thread for I-70 exit 421A in Kansas City, KS:

It's marked "RR Yard - No Outlet - Railroad Use Only". Legally, from there the only place you can go is to make a U turn and go back the way you came on I-70. If you continue onward, you're connected to a maze of one-lane roads that snake around the Union Pacific rail yard, some of which do come out on the other side and connect to various other Kansas City streets. But it's quite clear from the No Trespassing signs that's not something the general public is supposed to be doing.

I was going to suggest the CIA, but that's another in the "primarily" or "for the most part" category...

Interestingly, this exit appears to be signed for an FHWA facility too. Looking at the satellite, you can definitely tell how to get to the FHWA facility—it has far, far more pavement markings than any other parking lot you'll ever see!

Off of WA-526 in Everett, there is a full interchange to Seaway Blvd, which almost entirely serves industries. However, off of Seaway Blvd is an exit devoted to Boeing.

That's just one part of that exit. There is an exit ramp that takes you to Butler Road and then from there you can go to either Greenfield or Schaefer.

I-84 in the Columbia River Gorge has an exit devoted to the Bonneville Dam: https://www.google.com/maps/@45.6343041,-121.9558404,16.25z

There are also hiking trails there, but I'd say the vast majority of traffic is dam-bound.

For many, many years this exit was signed "Bureau of Public Roads" (even long after BPR had left the Commerce Department and become the Federal Highway Administration under the new USDOT) - and, of course, no mention of the Central Intelligence Agency).

It got to the point that it was a running joke, because anyone living in the Washington area knew that this was a "back door" entrance to the CIA's Langley campus.  I think it was in the 1980's or early 1990's that the CIA and the National Park Service finally agreed to signs that mentioned the CIA.

After that, the NPS installed signs on the Baltimore-Washington Parkway that made reference to the "NSA" (not National Security Agency). Now there are also signs on the Parkway that point drivers to the National Cryptologic Museum, which is on the edge of the NSA campus in a former motel that NSA bought-out, and open to the public.

How about Exits 215 and 216 on the I-80 section of the Ohio Turnpike?

I have never had reason to exit here, but it seems that these exist mostly to serve traffic coming to and from the General Motors Lordstown Assembly complex.

The exit was built because of GM's Lordstown Assembly plant, but it connects to the local road network including SR 45. It's the way to get to the Turnpike from downtown Warren.

Exit 46 on CT 8 has a bunch of industry, with not that much outside of it.
Also I guess Exit 43 on I-395...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sand_Hill_Road

Sand Hill road exit off I-280 in the southern portion of San Mateo County.

That is an industry exit for the Venture capital companies.

Also there's Air Force Parkway Exit in Fairfield,Ca because of Travis Air Force Base halfway from both San Francisco and Sacramento. Some defense contractors are in the area though in association with the Air base.
