In 2003, KDOT constructed a new bypass on the north side of Elkhart. The bypass was designated as part of K-27 and the old route was turned back to the city and county. While the old road ended at the Kansas-Oklahoma line short of US 56, the bypass ended at 56 east of Elkhart. The Oklahoma highway that connected to K-27 at the state line, OK 95, was truncated back to US 56, creating a discontinuous route connected by US 56.
