Along freeways in the Kansas City metropolitan area, the state highway agencies in both Missouri and Kansas have erected blue mileage markers, usually every two-tenths of a mile. These markers are on US 169 in Kansas City near the former village of Nashua in Clay County. In the photo on the right, you can see, in the far background, the first sign gantries for southbound traffic approaching the US 169 interchange with Interstate 435.

These photos were taken in October 2003.
