I guess if the I-240 designation is applied to the Kickapoo Turnpike that might do away with any chances of a Southern extension down and over to the Norman/Moore area.

Oh wow, what the fuck? The SH-3xx numbers make sense but that overgrown I-240 is going to take a lot of getting used to.

That I-240 extension is just plain goofy. Is it going to have four cardinal directions? Will there be an overlap (follow route in ODOT-speak) with I-40 east of OKC?

It does look goofy...not so much as a beltway as it is a belt buckle.
