Historic termini

US 166 from Baxter Springs, Kansas to South Haven was an original 1926 route. In 1945, the east end of the route was extended through Joplin, Missouri, where it paralleled U.S. Highway 66 to Springfield, Missouri. But when the last section of Interstate 44 was completed between Joplin and Springfield in 1966, the east end of US 166 was truncated from Springfield back to the I-44 intersection west of Joplin. The old sections of US 166 between Joplin and Springfield not upgraded to interstate standards were either downgraded from state to local/county jurisdiction, renumbered as I-44 business loops or renumbered as state highways.
