Route 283 is a short highway in the Kansas City, Missouri regional area. Its northern terminus is at Interstate 29/U.S. Route 71 in Kansas City; its southern terminus is at Route 9 at the northern city limit of North Kansas City. It is known locally as North Oak Trafficway. It connects a handful of small independent subdivisions to nearby Gladstone, Missouri and North Kansas City, Missouri, and connects them in turn to Kansas City, Missouri itself. The highway is host to more of the Gladstone area's shopping than any other single road.
Route 283 begins at a fork from Route 9 northbound (Burlington Avenue) in North Kansas City, Missouri. The two routes fork away from one another, with Route 283, the North Oak Trafficway, crossing Northwest 32nd Avenue as a four-lane divided highway. North of Northwest 32nd, Route 283's four lanes come back together and bend northward over a creek as it enters Water Works Park along the southbound side. The route heads due north, becoming commercial northbound and residential southbound. This changes to a long commercial district in Kansas City before intersecting with Northeast Briarcliff Road/Northeast 42nd Street. At that point, the four-lane highway returns to a residential stretch until Northeast 46th Street. After Northeast 46th, Route 283 enters an interchange with Interstate 29 and U.S. Route 71, where the designation terminates at ramps just south of U.S. Route 69 (Northeast Vivion Road) and Anita B. Gorman Park.
The entire route is in Clay County.
