Historic County Served: Crawford (1943-1958)
K-103 was established October 11, 1940 to connect the city of Weir to the state highway system. The number was assigned in sequence; K-102 and the first K-104 were designated on the same day. It was blacktopped by September of 1941.
In 1942, it was proposed to remove the newly-paved link through Weir and replace it with a spur connecting with a proposed relocation of US 160 along the Crawford/Cherokee county line north of Weir. However, conditions brought on by World War II delayed the project. In 1943, the proposed spur was abandoned and K-103 was assigned to the proposed project west of K-7. The delayed project was blacktopped by 1954, and the US 160 designation applied on July 9, 1958.

Counties Served: Saline
K-104 was designated January 27, 1967 connecting K-4 north to I-35W, replacing a short segment of US 81, along with a connecting segment of Mentor Road. The Mentor Road segment was constructed as part of I-35W from Mentor Road to I-70. The number was derived from K-4.
West Endpoint: Junction US 69 in Pittsburg
East Endpoint: Route H at the Missouri State Line east of Pittsburg
Southwest Endpoint: Junction US 160 South of McCune
Northeast Endpoint: Junction US 69/K-126 in Pittsburg
Counties Served: Crawford (1940-1958), Cherokee (1943-1958)
K-104 was established October 11, 1940 to connect US 69 in Pittsburg to Missouri Supplemental Route H at the state line east of Pittsburg. The number was assigned in sequence; K-102 and K-103 were designated on the same day. It was blacktopped by September of 1941.
By 1942, Missouri changed the connecting route from a lettered supplemental route to a numbered state highway. As the number 104 was already in use in eastern Missouri, both states agreed on a new number: 126. At the same time, a new alignment for US 160 was proposed along the Crawford/Cherokee Line, and K-104 was proposed for the existing US 160 alignment. However, conditions brought on by World War II delayed the project. In 1943, K-104 was assigned to the proposed new alignment from K-7 east to US 69. The delayed project was blacktopped by 1954, and the US 160 designation applied on July 9, 1958. The former US 160 was designated as an extension of K-126 instead of K-104 as originally planned.

North Endpoint: Junction US 54 north of Toronto
Counties Served: Woodson
When US 54 was being designed to be improved, it was slated to take a more direct route, bypassing Toronto. The citizens of Toronto opposed the plan, feeling that it would lead to the demise of the town. As a compromised, a spur was established on January 13, 1941. The number was assigned in sequence. Brought in as a gravel road, it was reconstructed and paved in 1950.
With the construction of Toronto Dam, a new road was from the east city limits of Toronto to the east side of the Toronto Dam. The new road was completed in 1961 as an extension of K-105. K-105 was subsequently extended twice: across the dam in 1965, and to the entrance to the State Park in 1996

K-106 was established July 7, 1944 to connect a relocated US 81 to Minneapolis. The number was assigned in sequence.
On May 25, 1949, K-106 was changed from a spur route to a loop route with the designation of a second connection from US 81 on the north end of town.
On July 11, 1956, the state agreed to maintain a existing county road between K-18 and Minneapolis if the county agreed to upgrade it to state standards. The state accepted the road on July 16, 1958. At that point, the north end of the loop was turned back.
In 1994, US 81 was widened to 4 lanes from Minneapolis north, including converting the intersections with K-106 and K-93 to a single diamond interchange. As part of the project, K-106 was extended southeast on a bypassed 2-lane segment of US 81 to K-93, then replacing K-93 east to the Ottawa County State Fishing Lake.
South Endpoint: Junction K-32 in Edwardsville

K-107 was established March 1, 1937 as part of the 1937 expansion of the highway system. Its numbered was a derivative of parallel K-7.
It was turned back to the cities of Kansas City and Edwardsville when the Kansas Legislature changed state law to disallow KDOT from maintaining intra-city routes on April 21, 1978. It became known as 110th Street.
During its tenure as a state highway, K-107 did not connect to I-70. An interchange between 110th Street and I-70 was eventually built in 1995

K-108 was established on August 28, 1946 as a spur from US 59 to Erie. Its number was assigned in sequence. On November 10, 1960, a second connection was added to the state highway system and K-108 was made into a loop route.
K-108 was turned back to the City of Erie on July 19, 2004, as Erie had annexed out to US 59
Proposed West Endpoint: East city limits of Liberty
Proposed East Endpoint: Junction US 169 east of Liberty
Proposed County Served: Montgomery
Based on anecdotal evidence and plans found in the KDOT archives labeled “109-63 S-214,” the number 109 was assigned in 1946 to a proposed spur between the town of Liberty and a relocated US 169 under development which would bypass the town. The number was assigned in sequence, as K-108 and K-110 were established in 1946.
While the US 169 relocation was completed in 1947, the spur highway was never established. The bridge replacement contemplated in the 1946 plans was completed as part of a larger project also numbered ‘S-214’ in 1957, but as a county-maintained secondary road.
