Significant construction will take place on 76 between the Highroad and 265 -- rock blasting to move the highway, etc. Hometown Radio says it will start on July 14th, KY3 says it will start July 21. Work is supposed to continue into December.

Will make it challenging driving to and from SDC, Indian Point, and Branson West the rest of the year.

Aww man, I really like that section. The only good news I can see coming out of this is that they're extending it to two lanes each direction which means no more bottlenecks right there.

I can tell tourists from locals if they brake on that curve.

Yeah...... the locals don't bother to slow down; they just straddle the yellow line.....
Another reason for the large number of single car fatalities in this area....

Sounds like some more of the "Ozark Beauty" is going to disappear. They just keep taking out more and more trees. After awhile will it just be all "rocks" instead?? We've always come down to see the tress, flowers, etc. but they just keep disappearing as more building takes place. They used to build around them. Now it's "push them out" and move on. Too bad....

How many are there?

Not to confuse straddling the center line with other driving issues, but most of the Ozark American accidents I hear about are from dropping a wheel off the right side and hitting a culvert, or overcorrecting.

Being cognizant of your observation, on those curves I favor the right side of my lane, and assume the natives will want part of my lane near the center line. It seems to be more sensible than having them hit me.

I am a dog-lover, and if they hit me with their pickup, no telling where their dog would wind up.

When my nephew did that, dropped a wheel off the right and hit a culvert, and then wrecked, DW said, "and at hospital they could not find one of his kidneys." I pictured folks out along the road looking for it.
