if you are taking I-70W accross IL, i would suggest exiting onto I-270W at the I-55/I-270/I-70 intersect. at that point, you can do one of two things.....if it is close to rush hour, i would suggest taking I-270W, exiting onto 370, which is a loop that will allow you to miss the traffic. take the loop around, then exit from 370 back onto I-70W (Kansas City). or if it isn't rush hour, stay on I-270W, then exit directly onto I-70W. take I-70W until mile marker 148, then exit onto Hwy54 South. Hwy 54 will take you directly into Osage Beach (Lake of the Ozarks). i've taken the I-55/44 route around the south side of STL, it seems to be longer for me, especially towing.Originally posted by Rforsey
Thanks we are going I-90 to I-71 Columbus the I-270 toward Dayton then I-70 Indianapolis. then VIncent gave us a shorter way around ST Louis that will put us on hwy 54 which will take us right into the Ozarks. down town ST Louis is a nightmare. What do you think good route ?
