U.S. Route 61 Bypass
The U.S. Route 61 Bypass, also known as the Hannibal Expressway, is not currently funded for construction. Environmental work was completed several years ago along a potential location for the bypass, Route M, just south of Hannibal, connecting to the U.S. 36/U.S. 24 interchange near the Rocket Plaza. A second location consideration was given to Trabue Lane, which is between Route M and Hannibal; however, no additional work has been done since funding was not going to be available in the foreseeable future.
