OZARK, Mo.-- It can be a traffic nightmare even in broad daylight: Highway 65 between Ozark and Branson. Bridgework on the southbound lanes has clogged the highway at times, especially on weekends. Relief is in sight.  By mid week, there will be one lane of traffic both north and south bound on each side of the median-- so no more head to head driving. Then by mid week next week, all four lanes on 65 will be open once again, in time for the July 4th holiday weekend. But after the 4th, you can expect a lot more construction zones in that same area.
