Hundreds of new signs now line the highway formerly known as 71.  The signage follows the unveiling of Interstate 49 between Kansas City and the Arkansas border. 

You might have noticed a few changes while driving along US 71 Highway. For instance, you may have realized while traveling south that the sign for Grandview has been replaced with a sign for Joplin. This is but one of several changes that will take place over the next few months for US 71, which will soon become Interstate 49.
