Entering Downtown Kansas City

Interstate 670 as Alternate Interstate 70

Because of frequent construction in recent years along the Intercity Viaduct (I-70 and US 40) between Kansas City, Kansas and Kansas City, Missouri, many freeway signs into downtown Kansas City, Missouri encourage the use of I-670 as an alternate route for going between the cities. This sign is on I-70, approaching downtown Kansas City, Missouri from the east.

The end of I-670 is marked about a mile and a half from here at the southeast corner of the downtown freeway loop.

This photograph was taken in 1998, three years before the Watkins Drive parkway and freeway was extended to the downtown freeway loop.
