U.S. 169

Highway Review:
U.S. 169 spans from Tulsa, Oklahoma to Virginia, Minnesota. It lasts for just 75 miles in the Sooner State. The highway begins at the U.S. 64 East interchange of the Creek Turnpike/Pearl Harbor Memorial Expressway. U.S. 169 is freeway grade for its first 26 miles, and remains a 4-lane divided highway for ten more miles until the highway leaves the town of Oologah. U.S. 169 is 2-laned for the rest of its course in Oklahoma, with a short 4-lane segment located near OK 28. The highway shares four and a half miles with OK 10 near the town of Lenapah. Six miles after leaving OK 10 behind, U.S. 169 says goodbye to Oklahoma and enters Kansas.
