A Blast from the Past

Detour for non-existent Business US 63 in Columbia, Mo.

With construction work on Old 63, now a city street in Columbia, the old designation of Business 63 was revived for detour signs. Some of these signs even made it out to the US 63 freeway along the east side of the city. The Business 63 designation had been removed from this route around 1980.

This photo was taken in September 2002 at Old 63 South and Stadium Boulevard. An all-orange version of the sign can be seen farther north on Old 63.
