K-33 is a 10.5 mile (17 km) state highway in the U.S. state of Kansas. It was originally designated in 1929. It is a two-lane expressway, linking rural Franklin County (near Rantoul) to Douglas County (just north of Wellsville on US-56. It provides an important link between US-56 and K-68. There is a junction with Interstate 35 in Wellsville.

Route description[edit]

K-33 begins at an intersection with K-68 west of Ottawa in Franklin County and heads north on a two-lane road through rolling plains. Approximately four miles (6.4 km) north of this intersection, the route curves to the east momentarily before curving back to the north. Here, the highway intersects Interstate 35 (I-35) and US-50 at a diamond interchange. North of this interchange, K-33 enters the city of Wellsville. In Wellsville, the highway crosses the BNSF Railway.[1] Continuing north, K-33 leaves Wellsville and Franklin County, and enters Douglas County. About two miles (3.2 km) north of the county line, the highway ends at an intersection with US-56.[2]
