I love MODOT

As regular visitors know, no one loves the Missouri Highway Department quite as much a me -- especially the way state highways are "numbered" in Missouri.

An overturned construction crane in blocking Highway 94 this afternoon and evening in St. Charles County, across the Missouri from St. Louis County. [The black "X"] MODOT suggests D to DD as a detour around the road closure. [The black arrows]

Note that you could also take D to T or D to T to TT being careful not to turn onto Z in New Melle (and easy mistake). Defiance (on 94) is where Daniel Boone lived. His stone home still stands. Otherwise, Defiance is now mostly biker bars. The roads are so crooked because they mostly follow Indian trails along the tops of ridges.
