It's almost the end for Interstate 57 in Missouri. This destination sign in Mississippi County indicates that Interstate 55 is four miles away. At that point, Interstate 57 ends and the route continues into Sikeston as US 60.

The apparently redundant Route is fairly commonly used on Missouri destination signs, even when the destination route is an Interstate highway.

Also of note on this sign is the use of button reflectors, once common on freeway signs but no longer being used for new signs.
