Best Thoroughfare for Dodging Traffic at Any Hour

Arsenal Street

St. Louis traffic is mild compared with that in Chicago, New York or Los Angeles when it comes to transportation planning and managing urban sprawl. Still, there are a couple of totally annoying elements of the daily asphalt grind: way too many four-way stops and looooooong stoplights. Zip a strip such as Delmar, Lindell or Natural Bridge, and you're likely to encounter both glitches. To the south, however, lies the brewery-splitting Arsenal drag. Although considerably heavier on the four-ways than the aforementioned arterials, stoplights and congestion are relatively scarce on Arsenal, making the wire-to-wire roll from Broadway to McCausland pleasant and palatable. With Arsenal in your driving arsenal (bah-dum-bump!), road rage becomes a thing of the past.
