In Central Missouri, Curtis Bohl has found what may be the last existing "alternate" route in Missouri after the decommissioning of Alternate US 71 in southwest Missouri in 1998.

Alternate Missouri 240 is the west leg of a "Y" intersection at US 40 in Howard County three miles northwest of Rocheport. Missouri 240 goes along the east leg of the "Y".

Missouri 240 has more than one derivative route with a distinctive designation. There's also Spur 240, just a couple of miles east of this location. Spur 240 is a spur route into Rocheport.
