Roark light and 76 expansion

How much longer must we endure this construction? It's amazing how much traffic one light can block up.

I was telling somebody about that the other day. I think they need to do some work with the timing of the light, unless they are doing it intentionally, but I can't see why. On a normal low traffic time of day, it took me about 15 minutes from Mazzio's past the light. It seemed it was letting about six cars through at a time and then cycling for the other directions.

That's light weight stuff.
If you want a real traffic snarl, drive thru Hollister where they are doing "seam repair" (at a snail's pace)...
I wonder how many guys it takes to do the actual repair and how many it takes to lean against the truck and smoke cigs?

If we had a casino here, we would get those light installed faster...









Sorry, for once, I wanted to be the first to try and take a thread over to the dark side.

That now being accomplished, I have to fight the road construction again today. I hope they get it done soon.

now you should go up to the show area and talk about how the Samoan's sing to much country music

is this a new stop light on 76? or an old one that's causing problems because of the road construction?

If it's a really sunny day and you are going east on 76 at roark and 76 you almost can't see the light. Its so faded and the sun overpowers it!

I everything clear getting off Highway 65 on Shephard of the Hills, heading west to the RFD Theater? That's the route we will be taking Wednesday in our RV, so we don't want to run into any construction if we can help it.

I dont wan't to hear you complaining! I live very close to the bee creek bridge.That means anytime I need to go branson, up to F highway I go.It took more than 20 minuetes to go from my house to 65 and bee creek yesterday! That should take 3 minutes. I have also used 30 dollars of gas in 3 days. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!
