The "Upper Old Hwy 6" sign confused me, along with a "Lower Old Hwy 6". Paving history indicates a new alignment for 6 was paved in this area in 1955.

SOUTH End: Oxford, Johnson County

Facing south on 109

The final route log gives a distance of .13 miles from Wilson Street to the south end, but this sign is farther south than that. I speculated that, like in some other towns, the end was at the railroad tracks, and this sign would seem to back it up, but given the log I don't know for sure.

Just south of the tracks, W38 goes west and south to meet I-80.
