FIELDS TRIP
Interstate 270 Illinois

Interstate 270 bypasses St. Louis on its northern and western sides. The highway runs from Interstate 55 southwest of St. Louis, then north to just past Interstate 70, where it curves to the east, and heads due east until its eastern end at Interstate 55 and Interstate 70 in Illinois. On Day Five of the Fields Trip, I drove Interstate 270 from Interstate 55/70 to Interstate 255 in Illinois, and from Interstate 55 to Interstate 44 in Missouri.
