OK 76

Highway Review:
OK 76 runs north-south throughout central and south-central Oklahoma. It begins its northward journey just south of the town of Leon, and just to the north of the Red River. It continues north and intersects with OK 32 and U.S. 70. OK 76 then heads west with U.S. 70 for 2.5 miles, then the highway heads north on its own, traveling through Healdton, Fox, Ratliff City, and Parnell. OK 76 then heads west with OK 29 for about five and a half miles. After that, it heads towards Erin Springs before yet another highway multiplex, this time in Lindsay for about a mile with OK 19. Then it makes its way towards Blanchard and joins U.S. 62/277 for a mile heading into the town of Blanchard. Then the highway heads north once again on its own, intersecting the H.E. Bailey Turnpike Spur, OK 130, and OK 37, where the northern terminus is located.

was from.) (Photo taken 1/31/03)

OK 76 North approaching OK 130. There is one error on this
sign: Newcastle is signed as being two separate words. Now, if
this was in Delaware, then that would be correct. But, in Oklahoma,
it ain't. (Photo taken 2/13/04)
