Missouri 27's southern endpoint is just beyond this sign on US 61 in Clark County. The "27" route number for the "Avenue of the Saints" designation linking Minneapolis-St. Paul and St. Louis is a short one in Missouri, but much longer in Iowa. Missouri 27 replaces Spur US 136, bypasses Wayland, and ends at the Des Moines River on a new bridge, continuing into Iowa as Iowa 27.
