Chapter 8 - Transportation and communication systems

The most notable transportation systems are listed below:

The main transportation artery within Jefferson State is the I-5 highway. This highway is used for most north south travel on the west coast, and extends from southern California to Washington. I-5 provides an important source of income from interstate travelers passing through Jefferson, and a number of key locations are found along the route including Redding, Mt. Shasta, Yreka, Ashland, Medford, and grants pass. The image below was taken near Ashland and shows the typical scenery along I-5.

Highway 101 winds along the coast, occasionally passing through redwood forests like in the image below.

Highway 140 begins just south of Ashland, Oregon and extends east. It connects to a highway hub near Klamath Falls. The image below shows typical scenery along Highway 140, and was taken near Yosemite National Park.

The largest airport in the region is the Rogue Valley Internaional Airport in Medford, Oregon. Other airports include the Klamath Falls International Airport, Siskiyou County Airports, Arcata Eureka Airport, and the Redding Airport.
