New Oklahoma Highway Number
« on: June 04, 2018, 07:31:49 PM »

At today's ODOT Commission meeting, one of the agenda items was the following:

Quote
73. State Highway System Revisions Mr. Swift
Tulsa County District VIII
Add the State Highway 344 designation to the new portion of the Gilcrease Expressway that is being constructed West of Tulsa. The alignment of State Highway 344 will be between Interstate 244/State Highway 51, west of Tulsa, and extend approximately 5.25 miles to the existing interchange of Interstate 244 and Interstate 44 southeast of the City of Tulsa.

The addition of State Highway 344 will become effective upon the completion of construction and approval by the State Transportation Commission.

I don't yet know whether it passed, but there shouldn't be any good reason not to approve it.

This doesn't make sense. The Gilcrease won't come anywhere near the I-244/OK 51 overlap, which is the western leg of the Inner Dispersal Loop (IDL).

I believe they misstated the northern interchange point.  They should have said 'US64/OK51'.

This is consistent with the 351 and 364 numbers issued to other Tulsa-area turnpikes.

Now if only we could get 325 renumbered to 456 so the 3xx series is all toll roads...
