Riverside Freeway would have been a disaster. 

Plutonic Panda:
It looks like ODOT is going to install wrong way detection systems on some sections of major interstates similar to what Arizona and New Mexico has done:

Figured this thread's first page would be a good place to ask this:

Which turnpikes in Oklahoma still accept cash, and which ones do not? I would presume that they all accept PikePass, TxTag, and EZTag.

When did the Duncan bypass open to traffic? There was just one sign for the route along Oklahoma 7 eastbound, and the bypass has no route number. Looking at it on aerials, it appears that right of way exists for possible diamond interchanges along what is otherwise a super-two expressway.

The funds for the Duncan Bypass were procured by Rep. Jari Askins back in the late 1990's. As noted, the RoW was purchased so it could be converted to a full freeway with 4 lanes. The intersections with Bois d'Arc and Beech have already had grade separations added. The Elk Ave intersection is on the 8 Year plan to be grade separated. So is Osage Road. Not sure why they skipped over Plato Rd and Camelback Rd.

The southern extension from 27th St south was added a few years ago. Bobby5280 might disagree but I've seen no formal plans to extend the bypass north around the west side of Marlow.

IIRC, the urban turnpikes (Kilpatrick, Creek, Kickapoo) are now all-electronic, while the high-traffic Turner and Will Rogers still take cash and aren't expected to convert to AET for a couple more years.

Someone more familiar can correct me if any of that is outdated. The Indian Nation definitely accepted cash when I drove on it a few months ago.
