Route descriptionEdit

K-141 begins at a southern terminus with K-4 west of the town Marquette. From there, the highway heads north for about 2.25 miles (3.62 km) before turning north-northwest. After the turn, K-141 travels along the top of Kanopolis Dam. Immediately after crossing the dam, the highway turns northwest, travels a short distance, then gently curves back to a northerly direction. K-141 continues traveling in a northward direction until it is one mile (1.6 km) south of K-140, at which time it turns northeast, crosses railroad tracks, then turns back north to its northern terminus with K-140 northeast of the unincorporated community of Carneiro. The entire route of K-141 travels primarily through rural grassland.[2] The total route length is 13.470 miles (21.678 km). Average annual daily traffic values range from 170 just south of the northern terminus to 255 over the southernmost seven miles (11 km) of the route.[1]
