NOTE: While IA 163 and US 63's exit numbers coincide at Exit 60 south of Oskaloosa, 63's numbers begin to decrease from that point because of its north-south orientation. IA 163's mileage is given in parentheses for all exits south of Oskaloosa. (The last exit number on this list, 191, is based on US 34's mileage.) Signaled intersections are included between US 65 and IA 117.

Thanks to Jeff Morrison for providing signage information for the Ottumwa bypass, which opened November 19, 2007.
