Hannibal Expressway

Hannibal Expressway

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.
