About Missouri Highways
First designated in 1922, Missouri’s state highway system was used to plan for the entire U.S. highway system, which was created four years later. Odd-numbered highways run north-south while most even-numbered highways run east-west. The state has five major interstates: I-29, I-70, I-55, I-35, and I-44.
