    Because it’s local - I noticed they have removed the west bound scale house at MM 4 on I-44.

    Round of applause!

    Apologies for the rather dramatic thread title - but it’s all true. They certainly didn’t have a ‘barn un-raising party’ to get the job done.

    In regular MO fashion, it’s still open for trucks to crash - errrr, I mean REST at.

    Was the East.
    They just got it back rebuilt up a few months ago, now rebuilding the westbound side.

    I believe that many new born puppies have just died.

    Are you suggesting that Missouri is building another behemoth on the westbound side - If so - my Peterbilt is considering self immolation.
