People want to live here because we're awesome! Probably a combination of low taxes, pretty scenery, and reasonable access to amenities in Rapid without having to live in Rapid.

Why is there a gate at Exit 400 on I-90 East?

Blizzard closure point.  Many cities out west have these at the edge of town so that you have to return to town instead of traveling into a dangerous situation.

At the location you have, there is a gate on I-90 WB at Exit 395.  They are preceded by these signs: https://goo.gl/maps/E69T87mgM1pyrFsx9

These are all over the place as you go across i-90.  Wisconsin has them on a lot of the entrance ramps to keep traffic off the interstate for accidents or blizzards.  Seeing them on the highway was unique.  It's a good thing since there are LONG stretches with no exits.  Bad place to get stuck in a blizzard.

Florida and Georgia have them as well for hurricane traffic redirection.

Referring to an earlier post, I have been reading about the higher accident rates during the pandemic in many states and it has really baffled the researchers.

The simple answer is lack of traffic removes impediments but I think that is too broad a stroke.  If anyone has a link to more detailed research data, I would love to read more on it.

2020 was also a record year for RV travel in the US. RV sales nationally have been at record highs. Would be interested to know if that played a role in any of the statistics.
