It puzzles both Dale and I that either MoDOT or the St. Louis Streets Department has closed off the entrance and exit to Clayton/Skinker from I-64 for the duration of Fair St. Louis. It's bad enough that you can't get off there going west, but I can sort of understand that. They want to keep fair goers from trying to get into the park at that point. But why oh why do they feel it necessary to keep drivers from entering 64 from Clayton/Skinker to head east? Cars must go down McCausland and enter the interstate from there, but the light is short and the cars are many which makes the traffic during fair times one long line.
I'm not whining about this, just can't figure out why. What would traffic heading downtown or to Barnes or to Illinois have to do with the Fair.?
