At the junction of K-4 with US 59, the through route is eastbound K-4 to northbound US 59 and southbound US 59 to westbound K-4. Traffic wishing to continue on US 59 has to make a turn and stop for traffic on the through route. Fortunately, the roadway is divided, so drivers only have to face one direction at a time. 25 March 2012
