OK 19

Highway History:
OK 19 has ran along mostly the same route since 1953. OK 19 once had its western end at U.S. 81/U.S. 277 near Ninnekah. OK 58 ran along the current OK 19 between Cyril and the current OK 19/OK 58 intersection.

Highway Review:
Oklahoma's 13th longest state highway, OK 19 begins at U.S. 283/OK 6 in Blair, which is about 10 miles north of Altus in southwest Oklahoma. The highway begins its easterly journey toward the Great Plains State Park, and then curves to the north for a few miles before heading back east. The state park isn't actually located on the highway, but it is pretty close. The highway intersects U.S. 183 just north of the state park and joins OK 54 near Cooperton. After heading off on its own, OK 19 also follows OK 115 for a mile and joins OK 58 for about five miles. After heading through Boone, the highway intersects U.S. 62/281 in Apache. In Cyril, OK 19 joins U.S. 277 for 19 miles before the two highways head north on U.S. 81 south of Chickasha. OK 19 heads east on its own before actually entering Chickasha. The highway then heads due east for a few miles before it takes a turn to the southeast. Between U.S. 81 and its next major junction at OK 76 in Lindsay, there were once two lettered spurs off OK 19, OK 19C in Alex and OK 19D in Bradley. Although still shown on some maps, a trip through that area in January 2003 didn't reveal any sign that the highways exist. After OK 76 joins OK 19 for a mile or so in Lindsay, OK 19 heads due east once again. After heading through Maysville, however, the highway heads southeast and intersects Interstate 35 at its exit 72. OK 19 then heads through Pauls Valley, the county seat of Garvin County, and heads northeast for a few miles before straightening out once again. West of Ada, OK 19 finds its eastern end at OK 3W and the over 170-mile journey ends.
