Long time lurker here from Oklahoma! I'm a map nerd and I've been becoming a road nerd as well!

Welcome from Norman! If you're a road nerd, there's lots of stuff around Oklahoma that will pique your interest. Good stuff like old bridges, to more questionable stuff like our signage–ODOT and OTA have quite the reputation around here for making some of the ugliest signs in the country.
