OK 66 (Pre-2006)

OK 66 (2006-Present)

Highway History:
OK 66 was once signed along today's OK 66B in Wellston. When U.S. 66 was decommissioned in 1985, OK 66 replaced U.S. 66, and the former OK 66 was renumbered as OK 66B.

Highway Review:
OK 66 runs along parts of what was once U.S. 66 through central and northeast Oklahoma. U.S. 66 spanned from Santa Monica, California to Chicago, Illinois before it was decommissioned in 1985. Parts of the old roadways in Oklahoma, Missouri, and Kansas that were U.S. 66 are now their state highway 66. U.S. 66's routing was taken over by Interstates 15 and 40 in California, Interstate 40 in Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and western Oklahoma, Interstate 44 in northeastern Oklahoma and Missouri, and Interstate 55 in Illinois.

OK 66 begins its journey at U.S. 81/Business Loop I-40 in El Reno. Ten miles later it enters Yukon and intersects OK 92 and shares a short duplex with OK 4. OK 66 joins Interstate 44 for 12.5 miles in northern Oklahoma City before heading east in Edmond. It shares time with Interstate 35 as well. At I-35's Exit 141, OK 66 heads toward the east. It follows Interstate 44 throughout the rest of its routing, rarely straying more than 10 miles from one of the interstates that caused OK 66 to be in the first place! It meets Interstate 44 three times between Oklahoma City and Tulsa-at Exit 158 in Wellston, at Exit 196 in Bristow, and at Exit 221 in Tulsa. OK 66 isn't too far away from the other Turner Turnpike interchanges.

In Tulsa, OK 66 is signed with Interstate 44 all 20 miles between the Turner Turnpike's eastern terminus and the Will Rogers Turnpike's western terminus. The highway then heads off on its own at Exit 241, which was the Will Rogers Turnpike's western terminus until 2002, when the interstate was rerouted a mile to the east. OK 66 then meets OK 266 at an interchange, also built in 2002, seven miles north of Interstate 44. OK 66 shares a short multiplex with OK 20 and OK 88 in Claremore. The highway then meets OK 28A in Foyil, shares a short wrong-way duplex with OK 28 in Chelsea, and then finds its eastern terminus at U.S. 60 near White Oak, west of Vinita.

U.S. 81/Bus. Loop I-40, El Reno

"END OK 66" signage at U.S. 81/Bus. Loop I-40 in El Reno.
Notice the blue directional tab on the Business Loop shield;
this should be a green tab. (Photo taken 11/26/02)
U.S. 81 North at OK 66 East in El Reno. U.S. 81 and the
business loop head west at this stoplight, which still says
that this road is U.S. 66/U.S. 270. A sign of the times, since
U.S. 66 was decommissioned in 1985 and U.S. 270 now
follows Interstate 40 in this part of the state. (Photo taken
OK 66 East shield just east of the western terminus. OK 66
will enter Yukon in about ten miles. (Photo taken 11/26/02)
U.S. 81 South/Bus. Loop I-40 East at OK 66. OK 66
begins straight ahead while U.S. 81 takes a turn to the south.
Interstate 40 is 1/2 mile to the south of this intersection.

OK 66 East at OK 92 in Yukon. This is the northern terminus
of OK 92, which in Yukon is known as Garth Brooks
Boulevard. The famous country singer is a Yukon native.

OK 66 East at OK 4 North in Yukon. OK 4 is about to join OK
66 for a few hundred feet before splitting. (Photo taken
OK 66 West/OK 4 North at OK 4 North in Yukon. OK 4 lasts
about nine more miles north of OK 66. It will intersect OK 3 in
seven miles and ends in the town of Piedmont. (Photo taken
OK 66 East/OK 4 South at OK 4 South in Yukon. This ends the
short duplex of these two highways. (Photo taken 11/26/02)
OK 66 East at Kilpatrick Turnpike West. The Kilpatrick
Turnpike connects Interstate 40 to Interstate 35 on the west
and north sides of Oklahoma City. (Photo taken 11/26/02)
OK 66 East at Kilpatrick Turnpike East. Even though the
turnpike is north-south at this point, it is still signed
east-west. (Photo taken 11/26/02)
Another sign of the times-this old bridge once carried U.S. 66
traffic across the North Canadian River before it was replaced
by the modern bridge I'm driving on as I took this picture.

OK 66 East approaching Interstate 44 West. Many businesses
along this stretch of OK 66 still carry the U.S. 66 insignia.

OK 66 East at Interstate 44 West/OK 3 East in Oklahoma City.
OK 66 continues straight ahead and the interstate merges
with the highway at this stack interchange. (Photo taken
Interstate 35 North/OK 66 East at Exit 141-U.S. 77 South/OK
66 East in Edmond. OK 66 isn't merged with another
interstate until Tulsa, 95 miles to the east. (Photo taken
OK 66 East at OK 66B East near Wellston. OK 66 is being
reconstructed between the ends of OK 66B, so all OK 66
traffic is using OK 66. In normal circumstances, OK 66B
goes directly through Wellston while OK 66 bypasses the
town. (Photo taken 7/16/03)

entering that highway. (Photo taken 7/16/03)
From OK 66B East, OK 66 East at OK 66B east of Wellston.
At the time this photo was taken, OK 66 was being
reconstructed between both termini of OK 66B, thus through
traffic was rerouted on OK 66B. (Photo taken 1/4/03)

another mile before exiting. (Photo taken 11/28/02)
