I did err ever so slightly. Highway 370 has not yet been designated as an Intrstate route.
What the heck is an OMB???

All I know is that the St. Louis metro area includes a few Illinois counties..

And you did not error so slightly, I-370 is in Maryland..

You are absolutely correct. The Mods consider the subs the scond city as well they should as the subs get far more queries than the rest of the state put together. If any of the other cities were a tourist destination then that area would be listed as a sub-forum too. We will see what happens when the other 7000 acres of fishing and boating are opened and it is advertised as a destination.
