Freeway exits that were irrelevant before a business was there
« on: January 18, 2022, 11:04:28 PM »

The CTH-CS exit off I-39/90/94 near Poynette was seldom used until the new Love's Travel Stop came along. Now there's a dozen semis getting on and off the Interstate there every two minutes.

Whether a team makes the playoffs isn't comparable to whether they are above .500. Part of making the playoffs is getting the wins when you need them to get in, which Brady/Belichick always found a way to do. That's skill. Being above .500 or below .500 is just however things shake out. That's luck.

MN 101 at CSAH 37 in Otsego. Same deal, except it was a Kwik Trip that got put in (over objections from nearby subdivisions).

NJTP Exit 16W.  Not much there before they built the Meadowlands Sports Complex.

In CT, I-84 Exit 62 (formerly I-86/CT 15 Exit 93). was pretty much just for the old JC Penney warehouse before they developed the area starting with Buckland Hills Mall.
