Another of those special routes is Lincoln Boulevard in Oklahoma City. This is an arterial street, which runs through the government complex, including the state Capitol. But part of it, from I-235 north to I-44, is designated as a state highway.

The turnpikes are also heavily traveled. They are: the Cherokee Turnpike; the Chickasaw; the Cimarron; the Creek; the H.E. Bailey; the Indian Nation; the Kilpatrick; the Muskogee; the Will Rogers; and the Turner, which is Oklahoma's first turnpike.

Overall, there's a lot there.

By the way ...

Additional information on Oklahoma's transportation system is readily available in libraries, bookstores and online, and at museums and visitor centers in our state.

One thing for sure, you need a state map. The state Transportation Department map always has been my favorite because I know the staff at the department keeps it up to date and easy for me to follow.

If you have trouble locating one, they can be found at a visitor's center, such as the one at NE 122 and the Interstate 35 access road. Or, most any state or county office can help you.

You can get a current Oklahoma map online by going to www.okladot.state.ok.us/hqdiv/p-r-div/maps/statemap/.

Good luck, Jim.

And for all you motorists ...

Enjoy your week and drive safely.
