Route 269 was a short highway in the Kansas City, Missouri area. Its total length was about two miles (3 km) and it is known as Chouteau Trafficway for its entire length. The northern terminus wass at Interstate 35 in Kansas City; its southern terminus wass at Front Street in Kansas City. The route had an interchange with Route 210 in North Kansas City. Chouteau trafficway is a very narrow road for the amount of traffic it handles, so in the summer of 2011, all buildings located on Chouteau between NE Parvin Road and NE Winn Road were taken by eminent domain and razed in order to widen Route 269 into a four-lane boulevard. The route was relinquished to Kansas City in 2012 as part of the widening. However, the road is still signed.

Route description[edit]

Route 269 began at an intersection with Front Street in Kansas City, Jackson County, heading northwest on four-lane undivided Chouteau Trafficway. The road passed through industrial areas, with a pair of ramps providing access to Levee Road. The route crossed the Missouri River and headed into North Kansas City in Clay County, where it had an interchange with Route 210. Past this interchange, Route 269 headed back into Kansas City and became a two-lane undivided road, passing businesses. The route continued north through residential and commercial areas before widening into a four-lane divided highway and coming to its northern terminus at an interchange with I-35. Chouteau Trafficway continues north of I-35 as an unnumbered road.[1]
