    Thumbs down I-35 north

    Anyone else stuck on 35N on the way home from the game? Currently stuck at mile marker 23. Traffic is pretty much sitting still but moves a couple cars every 5-10 minutes.

    I'm bored and wish I could listen to the post game show.

    Should have just chilled in KC for a few hours. You're probably going to be stuck for awhile.

    Re: I-35 north

    You guys were still in that traffic at 3:42 or so??? I was right where the traffic started funneling together at 2:42 and ended up making a U-turn after 2 troopers went flying by on the outside lane.

    We ended up taking Us69 for several miles. Only threw us off by 20 minutes overall...

    Anyone ever find out what happened??

    It almost looked like both lanes got shut down because there was barely any southbound traffic then it was bumper to bumper and we started moving.

    yeah the troopers flew by us too we were almost to the 1 lane part. we decided to wait it out and when we finally got going again 45 minutes or so later (!) there was no accident. At one point a flat bed passed us on the right so I assume by the time we got through everything was cleaned up and gone.

    Did see someone in the ditch during one of the downpours later on.

    Yeah.. We stopped for the first 5 to 10 minutes and we had two people going by us on the inside to use the emergency turnaround thing, so we jumped in too.

    The interstate was dead when we got back on just north of where the construction ended. We had to of beat the crowd by a few minutes i think
