Matching a Route Number in Kansas and Missouri

Kansas route 171, matching Missouri 171

Matching Missouri 171, Kansas renamed its former route 57 on July 1, 2003. It's now Kansas 171. At an earlier time, the route designations had matched, until Missouri redesignated Missouri 57 as Missouri 171, probably to keep from having two route 57's in the state after Interstate 57 was built in the southeast corner of the state.

This photo was taken in July 2003.
