^^^ Frisco, CO (I-70 ex. 203) is #11 for the month, #313 total. As WetEv noted, this one finally completes the crossing of the Rockies, but another is needed to connect I-70 all the way - see below).
Here's my Top 9 (was Top 10 with Frisco) of "Coming Soon" sites which are needed to initially complete EA's primary Interstate network, listed from N-S and W -E rather than in an order of priority:
California: Anderson, Firebaugh or Harris Ranch, and "Bakersfield" (all I-5); Barstow (I-15); El Centro (I-8).
New Mexico: Lordsburg (I-10).
Florida: Gainesville (I-75).
New Hampshire: Seabrook (I-95).
Maine: Scarborough (I-95).
In addition to the above, there are several sites which aren't yet on the "Coming Soon" map, but which in some cases are as or more critical than the above. It's curious that the west coast remains unconnected in practical terms (which I'm defining as <= 140 mile legs between sites) with the rest of the country east of Salt Lake City, except for a single possible route along I-8/10 with some remaining too long legs, despite the high % of PEVs here. Towns/city names indicate the recommended area rather than the specific site:
I-8: Gila Bend, AZ.
I-10: Blythe, CA.
I-70: Green River, UT. This is the single most valuable site on both lists, as it will connect the east to both the PNW (via U.S. 6 in UT) and SoCal via I-15.
I-80: W. Wendover, UT. In addition, Lovelock & Wells NV, and maybe Lake Point, UT.
I-84: Twin Falls, ID (to connect with Wells for people driving to/from Grand Teton/Yellowstone and Norcal.
