The James River Freeway goes through the southernmost part of Springfield, but carries various designations along the route. Most, but not all, of the route is designated US 60. For any potentially confused traveler on westbound Interstate 44 near Republic, this advance exit sign indicates that there's a section of the freeway that carries the Missouri 360 designation, leading in a few miles to US 60.
