When H.B. Elkins was traveling through southwest Missouri in 2001, there was construction work on then-Missouri 13 (now Missouri 413) about ten miles from this point along the concurrence of Missouri 13 (now 413) and US 60 southwest of Billings. This sign was near the southwest end of the concurrence. Presumably, vehicles that couldn't squeeze through the narrow lane could continue on US 60, taking the long way around on supplemental routes or even on Missouri 39 south of Aurora.
