We drove past the construction area, and I agree - the character is lost with one less curve.  That's part of a trip that makes vacation different from home.

We went through there this weekend and I was pretty disappointed. I'm sure it will help traffic flow, but I've always though it was so cool to be driving through the woods and then here's a stoplight in the middle of nowhere. Yes, I'm easily amused. I did think however that was a particularly pretty section of 76. Now it will just be another flat shadeless stretch of road.

four lane from the high road to the 376 intersection

When is that supposed to happen?

working on it now Larson, they are taking our the curve, and as I understand it,   widen shoulders and then restripe road..  will be "4 lane" from 265 to SDC turn-off..

1 lane for SDC (I believe) the other will go straight through for "local" traffic..

I just hope it helps with the flow like MODOT thinks it will..

It looked like it was being worked on when I was there in July. There was equipment removing trees and bringing in dirt just a bit to the west of the highroad/76 intersection. I hate to see the curve taken out. It is our favorite part of the trip that let's us know we are nearing our destination as we pull the trailer to the Wilderness.
