OK 23

Highway History:
1953: Between the Texas state line and U.S. 270/U.S. 412/OK 3, OK 23 was signed as a western OK 15. OK 15 was also signed along today's OK 15 segments, and they were joined by today's U.S. 412, which was signed as OK 15 between Woodward and Garber until the late 1980s.

OK 23 did exist at this time, however, except it was in northeast Oklahoma. Today, this road is signed as OK 123 between OK 11 in Barnsdall and U.S. 60 in Bartlesville, which is most of OK 123's present route.

Highway Review:
OK 23 is the only north-south highway through central Beaver County in the panhandle. Most of it is duplexed with U.S. 270. The highways travel through the Beaver County seat of Beaver. (pop. 1,570)
