The M180 fully opened in 1979 and was built to allow goods traffic to access Grimsby and Scunthorpe, replacing the A18 in the strategic role. The section between M18 and junction 1 was originally opened as A18(M).
The M180 has its own spur, the M181 with which it has a free-flowing junction, compared with the M18 junction which is a flat roundabout.
