How many people have to be seriosly injured or die before the elected officals of Ofallon,Lake st.louis,wentzville and the state of missouri (senator rupp ) get off their collective asses and address a road that is more over loaded and dangerous section of road (2nd most dangerous section of road in missouri as report by the mo dept of statistics ) mean while you improve every feeder road to hwy N .....I call on all u elected supposable leaders to pull your heads out your tail and do your job and fix this dangerous section Hwy N before the next person is killed or after all it could be your own son or daughter or friend ......what do you say Senator Rupp ,Lake St.louis tgis is in your own back and is long overdue to corrected.............. a long term concerned citizen .....thanks

My understanding is this section of Hwy N from Sommers Rd. to Hwy Z is a state road that crosses three different cities and none of them want to take on the liabilties of maintaining the road if they improve it.This state hwy is a narrow 2-lane no shoulder road with severe drop offs that lead to many cross-over accidents and fatalities .......i would like to hear some comments from our elected officals on this topic and your collective lack of action on this matter-what do you say about this long term faliure-any of you leaders got the guts to comment on this matter ?

The road is fine, maybe ya'll should have thought about it before you kept buying houses out here. I've never had an issue driving on it in the past 20 years that I've been driving on it.

There is nothing in the project schedule from 2013 to 2017 according to the updated MoDot schedule of improvements. The State and Federal budget is being sliced up and very few real projects have been funded.

As far as St. Charles County backroads go, Highway N is by far one of the simplest. I frequently drive on most of the "dangerous" St. Charles County backroads: D, DD, F, N, P, T, W, Z, Old 94, and many of the roads that feed into them. These roads certainly command a driver's respect, but come on.

The dump trucks have no problem getting to and from Fred Weber on F in Defiance, and the truckers have no trouble using W to avoid the Foristell weigh station. There are also school buses navigating many of those roads. If they can do it, our cars and trucks should have no problem.

If you think our backroads are scary, you should go to California and try Mulholland Drive. Or...the entire Pacific Coast Highway. Or...many roads throughout the Rockies/ Appalachians.

At some point, you have to let natural selection run its course.

I agree wholeheartedly with yazman. Also, it's not the road that's dangerous, it's the morons driving 70 while trying to yell at 4 kids in the back of the bus sized SUV and updating your Facebook status that's the problem. More and larger lanes won't fix that.

Tell that to julie stone's parents, 16 yr old who was killed in a head-on in front of wynngate or the wife of the 35 yr old father of 3 that lived in Lsl that was killed in front o falling leaf farms,there is a wreck at the dagerous dbl curve weekly . The satisical center in jefferson city has recorded over 50 accidents in each of the last 5 years meaning there are serious injuries or fatalities.So pull your heads out of your tales i have seen the load of traffic on this road double ,triple and quadruple in the 23 yrs i have lived here and countless accidents over that time . The divided 4-lane in front of wal-mart is designed for 20,000 cars a day the streach from sommers to Z and beyond is not ! Before you tell me that road is safe check your facts , i have talked everyone from st.charels road engineers to mayors and city administrators senators Rupp and before him Dolan all admit its a problem but do nothing about it . Because its state hwy it can be 3 or 4 days before it even gets plowed . l mean come on is adding a three foot shoulder to prevent the drop-off cross-over accidents really to much to ask ? I pay a pretty good amount of taxes you know ! When it comes to all the development along this stretch of these cities of wenzville,lake st.louis and o'fallon slam dunk every development that comes across their laps without addressing the infrasucture and road improvment needed.... The developer makes his millions ,the city raises its tax baseand i get left with my property taxes quadrupling in 20 yrs and an old ,crappy out-date road called hwy N ......

Oh look, the idiot is trying to say something.

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.

AND maybe you can figure out how to properly begin and end a sentence. This isn't a spelling or a grammar test, give people a break.

Good one! I see your writing skills aren't the only thing at a third grade level.

Give people a break? Did you read that blob of a paragraph? That was awful.

We'll look at spelling just for fun.
Wyndgate, not wynngate.
of, no o.
dangerous, not dagerous.
double, not dbl. Is it really that hard to type out the whole word?
statistical, not satisical.
tails, not tales. A tale is a story.
stretch, not streach.
St. Charles, not st charels.
it's, not its. "It's" is a contraction for "it is", whereas "its" shows possession.
Again, it's, not its.
infrastructure, not infrasucture.
improvement, not improvment.

I'll say it again: if you want intelligent adults to take your message seriously, it helps to write like one.

Why is this guy bickering with you a-holes? Might as well be wrestling with pigs. Come on, man. Live to fight another day.

Like it or not, educated people judge those with bad grammar. Just saying. And guess who makes all the decisions?
