The business loop in Burlington joins Interstate 70 with the city center between Exits 437 and 438. The 1.97 mile route overlaps with U.S. 385 north from I-70 along Lincoln Street to U.S. 24 (Rose Avenue) east. The three routes combine east through the business district to 8th Street. U.S. 385 leads north from the Kit Carson County seat to Wray while U.S. 24 spurs northeast. Rose Avenue (Route 070Q) returns Business Loop I-70 to I-70 in 0.24 miles.

Signs from Interstate 70 acknowledge Business Loop I-70 from both ends. The route however is not cosigned along either U.S. 24 or U.S. 385.
