"Liberty-style" markers, a term I coined after first encountering these kinds of markers in Liberty, can be found elsewhere in the Kansas City area. These markers are on Missouri 7 at Missouri 150 in Lake Lotawana. Also strange is the use of separate posts for each set of markers. Usually, one post would be used with brackets added. Doubtless, this "assembly" was probably installed by a contractor rather than MoDOT.
