It's Not the Shortest US Highway

US 249 for Missouri 249 (goof) east of Joplin

It's not US 249, but Missouri 249, running just to the east of Joplin. This is one of several mistaken markers that David Backlin found along the route in December 2006. This not-so-reassuring reassurance marker is just north of Missouri 249's southern endpoint at Interstate 44.
