Interstate 29 Business
Location Saint Joseph, Missouri

Interstate 29 Business is a Business Loop of Interstate 29 in Saint Joseph, Missouri. It begins at a diamond interchange with Exit 44 (U.S. Route 169 in Missouri), and heads northwest, overlapping that route. After a bridge over a former Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad line (now Burlington Northern and Santa Fe) BL-29 has an intersection with Pear Street, where it turns straight west. Pear Street ends at the intersections of Easton Road and Garfield Avenue, and BL-29 moves northwest onto Garfield Avenue, along the northeast side of the same CB&Q line it crossed over when it overlapped US 169. One block away from intersection with 11th Street across the tracks from the LifeLine Foods factory, northbound BL-29 moves onto 10th Street, while southbound BL-29 runs along 9th Street. Both streets have partial interchanges with US 36. Southbound 9th Street has on-ramps to US 36, while northbound 10th Street has off-ramps from US 36. Through the more formerly industrious downtown St. Joseph, between Mitchell Avenue and Penn Street, both 9th and 10th streets run on the sides of the Pony Express National Museum. [1] The one-way pair ends at Frederick Avenue between Francis and Jules Streets, and BL-29 moves onto Frederick Avenue as it runs northeast. The road turns east at Highly Street near North 25th Street at the Dr. Jacob Geiger House-Maud Wyeth Painter House. Along the way, it passes the Molina Golf Course and runs between the Northwest Missouri Psychiatric Rehabilitation Center and the Glore Psychiatric Museum. US 169 is encountered a second time and BL-29 overlaps Missouri State Route 6, then passes by the East Hills Shopping Mall before finally ends at Exit 47 on I-29, another diamond interchange.

Interstate 29 (I-29) is a north–south Interstate Highway in the midwestern United States. In the state of South Dakota, I-29 traverses on the eastern side of the state from the Iowa border near Sioux City to the North Dakota border near New Effington. On its route, I-29 passes through western portions of Sioux Falls, the state's largest city. It travels 252.5 miles (406.4 km) in the state, the longest stretch of any of the four states through which it passes.

There are currently eight business routes of Interstate 94 (I-94) in the US state of Michigan. These business routes connect I-94 to the downtown business districts of neighboring cities. Seven of the eight routes are business loops which bear the Business Loop I-94 designation while one is a business spur that bears the Business Spur I-94. These loops are former routings of I-94's two predecessors in Michigan: US Highway 12 (US 12) or US 25. The westernmost BL I-94 runs through the twin cities of Benton Harbor and St. Joseph along the former routing of US 12 and US 31/US 33 that now includes a section of the Lake Michigan Circle Tour in the state. The loops in Kalamazoo, Battle Creek, Marshall, Albion, and Jackson were also formerly segments of US 12 which were later designated as separate version of Business US Highway 12 through their respective cities before becoming BL I-94s in 1960. The BL I-94 in Kalamazoo was converted into BS I-94 in 2019. The route of the business loop through Ann Arbor was previously US 12 and then later M-14 before receiving its current moniker. The BL I-94 through Port Huron was previously US 25 and then Business US Highway 25.

There have been nine business routes for Interstate 75 in the US state of Michigan. Numbered either Business Loop Interstate 75 or Business Spur Interstate 75 depending if they are a full business loop or a business spur, these highways are former routings of I-75's predecessor highways in the state. They were designated as I-75 was completed through the various areas of Michigan. The business loop in Pontiac runs through that city's downtown along a section of Woodward Avenue and a segment of roadway formerly used by M-24. The former Saginaw business loop was once a part of US Highway 23 (US 23), as was most of the original Bay City business loop. The roadways that make up the business loops in West Branch and Roscommon were previously part of M-76, I-75's predecessor through that part of the state. In Northern Michigan, the Grayling and Gaylord BL I-75s were part of US 27, and the two business routes in St. Ignace and Sault Ste. Marie in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan were part of US 2. A tenth business route, a loop through Indian River has been proposed. Each of the business loops connects to I-75 on both ends and runs through their respective cities' downtown areas. The two business spurs only connect to I-75 on one end and run into the appropriate downtown.
