List of Missouri highways


List of Missouri highways

State highways in Missouri were first designated in 1922 and Missouri's system was used (along with Wisconsin's) as a plan for the entire U.S. Highway system which was created in 1926.Fact|date=February 2007 In Missouri, odd-numbered highways run north-south and even-numbered highways run east-west (with a few exceptions, such as Route 112). Missouri also maintains a secondary set of roads, supplemental routes, which are lettered rather than numbered.

Missouri has also changed highway designations with a US highway or an interstate with the same number is designated through the state (Route 40 was redesignated Route 14 to avoid duplicating numbers with U.S. Route 40 which also passes through the state).

In some states (such as Arkansas), highways are not allowed to be continuous. Missouri overlaps highways in order to maintain continuity.

The Missouri Department of Transportation routinely uses the term "Route" in reference to the names of the roads. However, Missouri statutes define them as "State Highways". Missourians use the term 'Route' and 'Highway' when referring to a state road. Older generations refer to all roads as 'Highway' XX, I-70 or State Route 35 would be called Highway 70 and Highway 35. Fact|date=April 2008 Or|date=April 2008 Younger generations are starting to refer to the types of roads, like I-70 and State Route 35.Fact|date=April 2008 Or|date=April 2008
