Yeah I don't know I haven't fleshed out the whole idea obviously. If it was a small amount I don't think I'd take the bond bridge from the airport.

Or....Toll them all!

There's an interesting quirk involved.

169- approx. 41.4k
MO 9- approx. 25.8k
I-35 approx. 100.7k

The 2006 study doc for the Bond Bridge said 2030 traffic would be:
100,000 for the No-Build Concept, 125,000 for the Six-lane Build Concept, 140,000 for the Eight-lane Build Concept and 135,000 for the Eight-lane HOV Concept

So it's entirely possible the bridge would hit the theoretical maximum it could hold. MO 9 can't handle too many more cars, the stop lights provide the maximum capacity. Some would split to 635 of course. But I bet there would be 25k more cars taking I-35 with a closing

We could find out what this maximum looks like real world and start planning way quicker. It would help give reasons to add commuter rail decades quicker.

I don't know if anyone knows this, but htf did we let this happen? We've gone from what seems to be no talk about this to complete panic/shut the bridge down for two years/fast track the north loop plan.

Someone fucked up? Who? This stuff drives me crazy.

The legislature nomadequately funding modot relative to the work needed plus over building most projects plus too many state roads period relative to our population combined with modot debt financing everything and not establishing maintenance funds.

Add to the mix, the recent discovery that submerged piers have eroded to an disturbing degree.
I understand that many informed on the subject don't use the bridge any longer.

You go me. What/where is LOTO? Is my belief a belief in an urban legend?
I know the Broadway Bridge was a toll bridge, at one time I believe there was a toll on both ends. But the bridge was a local government build, no state money.

The toll booth were all where the bridge gets wider on the south end.

That bridge was not built by the state but by a private corp. I believe it was built and now operated by The Lake of the Ozarks Community Bridge Transportation Development District.

Hence my suggestion of a public private partnership.

Toll gates, which were part of the original bridge, could also be part of the solution, Minder said.

“That’s how we funded it the first time,” he said.
