OK 5 (East)
(EAST)

Highway Review:
The eastern OK 5 begins south of Altus at U.S. 283. Twelve miles later, in Tipton, the highway begins heading south at the junction with a spur route, OK 5C, and then a few miles later it intersects U.S. 183 in Frederick. The highway shares roadways with OK 36 south of Chattanooga, U.S. 277/281 west of Walters, and OK 65 in Temple. Remaining towns along the route are Walters, just east of its junction with Interstate 44/H.E. Bailey Turnpike, Temple, and Hastings. Just south of Waurika Lake the highway heads south again and a few miles later OK 5 ends at U.S. 70 in the town of Waurika.
