Keep On Going

Single-panel trailblazer for routes in downtown Kansas City, Mo.

Independence Avenue in downtown Kansas City effectively becomes part of the downtown freeway loop while forming the southern boundary of the River Market area. US 24 runs along Independence Avenue before joining the freeway at the northwest end of the loop; Interstates 35 and 70 are on the freeway (the "6th Street Trafficway") itself. Note the unusual placement of the straight-ahead arrow above the US 24 marker. (Photographed in September 2012.)
