Route description

Route 73 begins at US 65 in Buffalo, concurrent with Route 32. It runs east for one mile (1.6 km) before splitting off on its own alignment. The highway heads north and has an intersection with Route 64 at Pumpkin Center. North of Route 64, it runs through Tunas and Branch. It then ends at US 54 west of Macks Creek.

Southbound Route 73's control city is listed as Springfield, as the road serves as a cut-off for traffic heading from Lake of the Ozarks without having to travel further west to US 65.

History

Before the U.S. Highway system was established, Route 73 was part of Route 15.[2] In 1926, a significant part of Route 15 became U.S. Route 54, including the section that is today Route 73.[3] Sometime between 1932 and 1935, US 54 was realigned to the north (switching places with Route 64), rejoining its old alignment west of Macks Creek. The diagonal section cut off between Buffalo and Macks Creek became Route 73.[4]
