No longer West 76

saw this news blip a couple places today, it's not West 76 in Branson, nor is it the strip, it's officially 76 COUNTRY BOULEVARD.

That's not new. It's been the official street name for several years, or close at least. I think it's actually 76 W Country Boulevard.

The state of MO has turned over ownership of a section of the road to Branson so it's no longer a state highway in that section.

yep, according to the news story the City of Branson gets ownership plus I think it was 5 million dollars for taking ownership. all new signage going up officially changing the name.


for most of us longtimers though it will always be just... "the strip"

Lots of tourist type places, and other cities have places called the strip. It's more like a description of an area than an actual street, or address.
The Las Vegas strip is actually South Las Vegas Boulevard.
West Hollywood's famous "Sunset Strip" is actually Sunset Boulevard.
So, the "Strip" is the strip, no matter what name politicians put on it.
