OK 270 runs along part of what was once U.S. 270 between U.S. 62
in Harrah and U.S. 177 north of Shawnee. The change occurred when
the U.S. 270 designation was moved south a few miles to
Interstate 40. A few errant U.S. 270 shields are still present,
however, around the western terminus. The western terminus end
sign says "END U.S. 270," for example. The highway is
signed east-west for most of its journey, but its first four
miles are signed north-south.

the highway is

continue here, but the federal highway now runs along
Interstate 40, which is about nine miles to the south.
