If you ever want to be taken seriously, you need to use good spelling and grammar. That's just the way it is. It sounds like you're advocating for the world to be more accepting of stupid people.

Oh sweet banana hammocks! Really? On an Internet forum? If you are expecting the "best of the best", you aren't one of the "best".

Common cents is right,hwy N is outdated overloaded road. I drive it everyday and have had several near misses,there is no room for error because there is no shoulder and steep drop offs.l too wonder when will they improve it. The volume keeps growing but the road does not,doesn't make sense to me either.

While it is a shame that people die on Highway N, I fail to see how it's the roadway's fault. If someone dies in a head-on collision, it's due to someone not maintaining their own driving lane. The road didn't cause it, ignorant driving did. Seriously, folks, if you're driving a 5000+ lb. vehicle, you're ENTIRE attention needs to be on the road. Drive for conditions. You don't need to drive 55 just because the speed limit sign says it's OK. You don't NEED to drive 40 around bends because the speed limit sign says it's OK. Slow down and pay attention to what the road is doing ahead and you won't have these issues. Everyone thinks they have to be somewhere 10 minutes ago and they forget that driving is a pretty big responsibility.

I challenge ANYONE to show me where Highway N caused an accident and I'll show you driver error.

I can show you several wrecks where there's no shoulder people have dropped off and when pop back on road they have caused head ons......have you ever cross a line or are you perfect ....On hwy N you cross the line 3 inches your in the ditch...... coupled with the speed and volume makes the road dangerous, get it duh. Thats why they hwys 40 feet wide not 9 feet wide ! BTW: l would still love to hear our elected officials chime in about this matter, why so silient is election time the only time your outspoken ?

I would highly recommend Google Chrome. It has a built-in spell checker. And you should learn the difference between tail and tale. And learn how to form a halfway decent sentence. And a paragraph.

Most of Missouri's highways are designed to have 12 foot lanes. The maximum width of a legal vehicle not displaying an oversize permit is 8 feet. The biggest problem on Highway N is that there is no escape, to avoid other vehicles traveling in the opposite direction. A standard shoulder width is 6 feet wide on most roads other than interstate highways. The roadway has approximately 10.5 feet lanes measured at various points along the roadway. This is common on most rural roads. But, Highway N is be moving to become a major access route. Meeting a school bus means they are hugging the center line to avoid running off the roadway. The best way to get something done is to write or contact your State Representative and voice your concerns. The squeaky wheel gets the grease. They state will then conduct a traffic study including traffic counts, accident experience , cross traffic conflict and pavement behavior and measurements. Any other questions you might have I'll be glad to address.

I respect your comments , i have talked to a number of officials going back 8 years when they were building alot of houses out this way. Sen. Rupp , Rep. Rupp ,city admin. and mayors of lsl ,o'fallon,wentz. road enigneers, state and st. charles county all the way back to Sen. Bob Dolon who sat on the road apropirations committe in Jeff city to no avail...The problem is no one wants improve it cause they would have to take over from the state, maintaning it, plow it, ect. The leaders of all these cities cant get together and agree on a plan..... if any of the leaders care to comment ...feel free ...I would love to hear what you all have to say. In regards to the studys, they have done several one saying 20,000 cars a day . Most i've talked to admit it's a problem area just can't seem to get it done ....What do ya say Sen. Rupp care to comment , i know you have worked on this and are aware of it. After all its right in your own backyard .

The road is a State maintained roadway. It can be released to the county for improvements etc. but that would not be economically feasible. With the current economic picture being as it is raising taxes to fix that road would be disastrous to any politician that would support it. In the mean time our best approach would be to remain focused on pressing state political leaders to make improvements.
The widening of the road is not the only issue involved. Rerouting electric lines, purchasing right of way outside the current boundary, and redoing all curb cuts along the way. The relocating the intersection of Duello was a major concern due to sight distance problems etc. the entire roadway being realigned would be a major thing.

The rock may have been added as a result of my calling Ed Hassinger from MoDoT but anything more will need an appropriation of a lot of $.
