OK 74 (South)
(SOUTH)

Highway History:
The two OK 74's were once connected. From today's southern OK 74's northern terminus (got that?), the highway continued straight to today's Interstate 35 Exit 106 (OK 9 West), then OK 9 and OK 74 crossed the Canadian River, and then OK 9 headed off to the east. OK 74 continued along mostly the same path as Interstate 35 to Robinson Ave., where OK 74 then went west. Three miles west of the interstate, the highway curved to the north and followed Western Ave. to S.W. 29th St. (which was then U.S. 62/U.S. 277/OK 3). OK 74 then went west on 29th St. to May, then went north on May to Edmond Rd., curved to the west for one mile to Portland, then curved back to the north.

Highway Review:
The southern OK 74 is a mostly 2-lane highway connecting OK 7 east of Tatums to Interstate 35 in Goldsby. The highway travels through Elmore City, Maysville, Purcell, and Goldsby on its over 50 mile-long journey. Highway intersections are located at OK 29 in Elmore City, OK 19 in Maysville, OK 24 (twice), OK 59, U.S. 77, OK 39, and OK 74B. Exit 91 off Interstate 35 in Purcell also accesses the highway, which is 4-laned throughout the town of 5,571. After heading through Purcell, the highway heads west underneath Interstate 35 and intersects OK 24 north of Washington. Two miles later, OK 74 spawns off OK 74B, which connects to OK 76, and just three and a half miles after the junction with OK 74B, OK 74 ends at Interstate 35 in Goldsby.

OK 74 South at OK 19 in Maysville. OK 19 spans the
south-central part of Oklahoma and runs from U.S. 283 north
of Altus to OK 3W near Ada. (Photo taken 9/6/02)
Washita River bridge on OK 74 just south of the OK 24
junction. This bridge looks like it's been around a while. It
was the only unusual bridge I would see on this day's 449
miles worth of driving around south-central Oklahoma.
