    Austin is a city in Dent County, Missouri, United States. The population was 3,371 at the 2010 census, which allows Austin to become a Class 3 city in Missouri; however, the city has chosen to remain a Class 4 City under Missouri Revised Statutes. Austin is located 13 miles north of Salem, which is also the Gateway to the Ozark Riverways.

    So... enough of the "Wikipedia" introduction.....

    Currently, all I have is a traffic map with labeled highways.

    Various City Info:
    Highways: State Route 19, Supplemental VV, Supplemental T
    Zip Code: 65561
    Area Code: 573
    Population: 3,371
    Year Founded: 1931

    Update: 12/06/2014 10:20AM
    The population has increased from 3,371 to 9,634. The state of Missouri completed a new highway, State Route 108. Route 108 starts at its south end on Route 19 just south of T highway. Route 108 ends at its northern terminus at Route 8 in Potosi, indirectly connecting Austin to the city of Sullivan via Route 185.
    In Austin, Route 108 serves as the main highway, named by the city as "Central Austin Avenue".

    As you can see, there have been several new roads added, and the city has expanded toward the East. The road stretching north from T highway in a circular fashion to Route 19 is "Austin Loop Road". The road will end up becoming a full circle, crossing VV highway, cutting back across Route 19, and meeting itself at T highway.

    At some point, I'll take the time to create a new traffic map, with the highways, old and new, labeled.

    Austin has grown from 9,634 citizens to 65,109.
    I-244 has been paved most of the way through, I just need to install the connectors for the RHM to exit on the northeast corner of the city.
    A small airport has been placed.
    I don't believe my city will have 1,000,000 residents, I'll just end up stopping at around 150,000.
    Route 19 will not become TLA-7, as the city grew more along Route 108, and Route 108 is also closest to the CBD (yep, have one of those now).
    Pictures will be taken and uploaded in a little while.

    4/5,
    Your city looks okay. Try to add more retail and use grass-paved roads for T1 residential areas.
