Syberg's service has gone way down maybe that is the reason for the 20% lose.

I would have to say if we survived the hwy 40 construction then this should not even be an issue.

I live in this area and drive through this intersection everyday. The construction really hasn't affected drivers that much until this past week, and it's still not bad. Overall, I think it's gone pretty smooth so far. I don't really see how it could affect them by 20%. Maybe they should consider adding signage to direct people to their entrance. Better service wouldn't hurt either.

This is a necessary evil. When the interchange is completed it will be one of the best in the U.S.

However, and this is a different topic, why don't motorists heed the speed limit signs? The work zone is posted at 25 MPH, but they don't slow down. It wouldn't work to have a police car there with it's lights flashing because they'd slow down because of the police, not because it's a work zone. Maybe when a construction worker gets injured they'll slow down.

I was going to go to Schnucks today to get some Grey Poupon but when I saw how bad the construction was I decided to say screw it and turned around at the post office and went home. I wish they would have just left Dorsett and 270 alone.
