The apparent concurrence of a US route and a state supplemental route might be one clue that something's wrong with this sign assembly on Zora Street east of Joplin. Another clue is that there's no such thing as US 249. Instead, there should be a Missouri 249 marker on this assembly. David Backlin found several such errors along Missouri 249 in December 2006.
