INTERSTATE SIGNS

Oklahoma is one of the few remaining states to still put the state name on its interstate signs (My collection).

US HIGHWAY SIGNS

(September 1999) Current style US and state road shields. Note the different fonts between the US and state road signs.

Older style embossed cut-out US sign. These were used from the 1920's - 40's (Collection of Robert Edgar).

STATE HIGHWAY SIGNS

(January 1999) Current Oklahoma and Arkansas signs (Photographed along the state line by Jeremy Lance).

(September 1999) Tulsa, OK. US and Oklahoma route signs on an overhead gantry on I-44.

Older Oklahoma route sign. This style immediately precedes the style above. It is black on a white Scotchlite reflective background and was probably used from the 1950's - late 60's. (Owner unknown)

Older Oklahoma sign assembly. This style dates back to the 30's and was used into the 50's (Photo by Joe Koehler).

OTHER HIGHWAY SIGNS

Oklahoma is home to many turnpikes. Some, like the Will Rogers turnpike, are also interstate highways (I-44). Others are Oklahoma Toll Roads and thus get their own trailblazers to serve as reassurance signs.
