By December, a section of U.S. 71 in Missouri measuring approximately 180 mile will be converted to Interstate 49, according to an article in the Kansas City Star.


The interstate will run from Kansas City to Joplin, and has a projected completion date of Dec. 12.

According to the Missouri Department of Transportation's website, this project is part of a larger plan by Louisiana, Arkansas and Missouri to complete I-49 from New Orleans to Kansas City.

The Missouri DOT was required to upgrade 20 at-grade crossings in four different counties (Barton, Bates, Cass and Vernon) to have U.S. 71 meet Interstate standards.
