On his way back from the official dedication of Interstate 49 on December 12, 2012, Matt Roberds found that Interstate 49 shields that had been covered up were (mostly) uncovered. This one is on the northwest side of Harrisonville, where Missouri 291, which long-ago was Bypass US 71, intersects with US 71 and the "new" Interstate 49.
