US 270 in Seminole, Oklahoma: rerouted?
« on: May 27, 2018, 03:50:57 AM »

This is from the latest AASHTO Special Committee on U.S. Route Numbering agenda which can be found here:

Action: Relocation of a U.S Route: Between SH-09 and SH-270A. Description: The route begins at the SH-09/SH-3E junction in Seminole and travels east on SH-09 to SH-270A/Harvey Rd., then south on SH-270A/Harvey Rd. for a total of 4.18 miles to join back with US-270.

Apparently US 270 now follows OK 9/Wrangler Blvd east of OK 3E to OK 270A/Harvey Road where it heads south to meet the old alignment at Broadway. It doesn't say, but I assume old US 270 will be renamed Business US 270 once this is complete.

Will anybody be in Seminole soon to give us a field report?

I think the point is to drop old US-270 from the system. There's not really any other reason to reroute US-270.

I'd say the point is to reduce traffic in downtown. I'll be going thru there next week and I'll check on this

Still signed on original route. Error reassurance sign on NB Harvey Rd N of US 270 says US 270A instead of SR 270A. It was installed in 1999
Traffic signal at US 270 & Main is so dim that I though it was not working as I was approaching it
