I found that once you appropriate a real location for a scene in a novel, that place becomes more tied to fiction than reality. When I drive by locations like the one you've shown here, I don't see them as they really are but as they are in my story/novel. It's true to a lesser degree in journalism. Once a man was murdered on the side of 95 between Hampton and Portsmouth. I covered this for the Herald. Now, when I drive by such locations where crimes or accidents took place, I see my crime scene version of that spot on the road.
