Highway 65 - 4 Lanes from Arkansas to Branson - No Traffic Relief for the Strip in sight

It's no secret that the Midwest's top drive to destination is the home of many a traffic jam. Federal and local funds dedicated to building new roads have been spent before they ever had the chance to burn a hole through anyone's pocket.

Rapid expansion of Hwy 65 to a four lane highway is well underway. Next month plans to build a bridge on 65 South of Branson accross Lake TaneyComo will be begin as well.

Will all this road expansion relieve traffic in Branson? No. The city is in desperate need of transportation infrastructure.

Still, if you're headed north to Branson you can expect a smooth ride to the parking lot we know as the Branson strip.
