OK 33/66/75A, Sapulpa

South U.S. 75A/END OK 97 shields just south of OK 33/OK 66 in
Sapulpa. The shield was once correct, but now it should have the state
highway shield, since the highway is now OK 75A. (Photo taken

OK 33/OK 66 East at OK 97 North/U.S. 75A South in Sapulpa. This is
also OK 33's eastern terminus and OK 75A's northern terminus. (See
above note as to why it should actually say OK 75A) (Photo taken
OK 97 North assurance shield/END U.S. 75A signs just north of OK
33/66 in Sapulpa. Interstate 44 is a mile away. (Photo taken 1/7/03)

OK 97 South at OK 166 East in far northern Sapulpa. OK 166 is one
of Oklahoma's shortest state highways, as it lasts only 0.7 miles.

Because of the sun glare, it isn't too visible, but this is OK 97 South/
OK 51 West at OK 51 West. The two highways cross the Arkansas
River just north of this stoplight. (Photo taken 1/7/03)

View of the construction of OK 97T north of Sand Springs. The sign
in the distance points towards OK 97T. The highway opened ten
days after I took this picture. (Photo taken 1/7/03)
Another view of the construction of OK 97T. The highway spans
about three miles from OK 97 to the Keystone Expressway. (U.S.
64/U.S. 412) (Photo taken 1/7/03)
OK 97 South approaching OK 97T. The sign does say "JCT OK 97,"
and OK 97 does turn left ahead, but most of the time, there would be
an OK 97T shield where the OK 97 shield is. (Photo taken 4/25/03)
OK 97 South at OK 97T South. OK 97 will enter Sand Springs in two
miles. OK 97T bypasses the Tulsa suburb and intersects U.S. 64/
412 in three miles. (Photo taken 4/25/03)

Zink Ranch, north of Sand Springs

"END OK 97" sign at Zink Ranch north of Sand Springs. This terminus
is one of the most middle-of-nowhere termini I have ever seen. There
isn't too much out here, except for the ranch. (Photo taken 1/7/03)
OK 97 South assurance shield south of Zink Ranch. The highway has
a speed limit of just 50 mph while it curves its way toward Sand
Springs. The speed limit decreases to 25 in Sand Springs before
gradually increasing to 65 between OK 51 and Interstate 44. (Photo

And just in case you wanted to see it, here's a picture of Zink Ranch
thrown in for good measure. (Photo taken 1/7/03)
