Can confirm what HG's saying.  I go through MO-152 to get to MO-291 to get to Fountain Bluff Sports Complex, and that section from Flintlock and MO-152 to the MO-152/MO-291 intersection gets reallllllllllllly busy, and this is a Sunday.  I shudder to think how it is like on a rush hour on M-F.  And disagree with HG's dangerous intersection in the entire KC area.  The stretch of Highway 71 from I-70 to I-49 ranks the worst, in my opinion.

Back roads, sometimes I take I-435 from MO-152 to get on MO-210 to bypass that.  While it is slightly a longer commute, you aren't hitting many stop lights on the way and less chances of rear-ending someone or you getting T-boned.

CC23, you're right in terms of KC traffic is minimal compared to DFW, and I have driven through DFW and Austin.  But I'm just stating that there has been no infrastructure improvements in the KC highways (except for Johnson County), and the population is growing.

So.... population increase + no infrastructure improvements (or highway improvements) = increasing gridlock.

That most dangerous intersection was done by some survay and reported on the news.  My opinion had nothing to do with it

So the good news is that Mr. Chick will be able to continue in his job remotely.

That helps us BIG TIME in working towards the move.  Knowing we'll have a steady income during the process helps, and also makes it 10 times easier to buy a house.

Hooray!

Ah, my apologies then.  I thought it was your opinion.  I still disagree with the survey and what's reported on the news, because US-71 between I-70 and I-49 is very dangerous, especially with those annoying stop lights.
