That would create a new seamless connection if I-44 all the way from I-35 near Edmond to I-44 near Bridge Creek. Extend SH-74 south to H.E. Bailey Norman Spur and end it there. I don’t know what to sign the HE Bailey Spur or the section of I-44 from SH-74 to I-35. Extend I-235 North to I-44(currently Kilpatrick). It removes a concurrency as well.

You couldn't extend SH-74 there, because at that point it would conflict with the other SH-74, which is in McClain County (the two were connected before the Interstate system was built). That would probably be better off as a 3di of some kind.

If you're not going to make the Bailey spur SH-4, the options are 304, 309, 376, or an I-x44.

d) Addition of a new Designation of SH-4 to the H.E. Bailey Turnpike – Norman Spur
;)

I don’t know what to sign ... the section of I-44 from SH-74 to I-35.
Slap an I-644 or I-844 on it?

Extend I-235 North to I-44(currently Kilpatrick). It removes a concurrency as well.
This adds some more I-235/US77 concurrency. Don't know if you're referring to the 235 extension or your proposal overall, but what concurrency would be removed?

I didn’t word that last one very well. I meant it removes the I-44/I-35 concurrency.

So...how quickly is I-240 going to be signed as the approved beltway again?

As far as I know, it's still pending AASHTO/FHWA approval. I don't know whether it was submitted at the last AASHTO meeting or not. The other designations approved at the beginning of August were signed in mid-October, so figure 2˝ months from the date that FHWA gives the go-ahead, I guess?

Ah, okay.  I must have misread somewhere that approval was somehow mixed in with the infrastructure bill.

You may be thinking of I-46/I-48/whatever the US-412 upgrade will become, which indeed ended up as part of the infrastructure bill.

General procedure for highway designations in Oklahoma is vote of the Transportation Commission → AASHTO → FHWA (with the last two steps, of course, only being needed for US and Interstate designations; for state designations the Transportation Commission approval is all that's needed to start running off meat cleavers). Presumably I-46/I-48/whatever will follow the same track.
