Oklahoma Highways

This post hardly qualifies as "historical" but I just wanted to do it -- and, hey, it's the state's "Centennial Map," so, why not!!! For truly "historical" Oklahoma City maps, go here.

I've scanned the Oklahoma Department of Transportation 2007 Centennial Highway Map, including Turnpike and City maps, and they are all available below - just click in the map for what you want to see ... Highways and/or Oklahoma City & Tulsa, Turnpikes, or Smaller City maps (Lawton, Enid, Muskogee & Stillwater) ... the pages are linked together so it is easy to move between groups. Hover your mouse over a choice and click what you want. You may need to click the map to activate it.

A copyright notice does not appear on the state's map so my assumption is that they are freely distributable and copyable, which I've done here. These scans do not include the Legends, City Indices, or the Mileage Table which are in the paper version but all other map elements are included. A non-readable sample page, below, gives a bit of the idea ...

Free copies of the paper version are available in the state's Visitor Centers and at the Visitors Area of the State Capitol among other places. The map also notes that,
Individual maps of Oklahoma counties and incorporated cities may be purchased from Oklahoma Department of Transportation, Printing Services, 200 N.E. 21st St., Oklahoma City, Oklahoma 73105, Telephone 405-521-2586.
Download To Your Computer. I've made a self-executing Winzip file containing all html code and graphic files which you may download to your computer, if you want. The file is large ... 23.9 MB ... so it will take some time to download if you're using a dial-up connection. You should probably check out the on-line version (above) to see if downloading it is worth the trouble!

To download the Winzip self-executable file, click here and save the file to your Windows Desktop. After downloading the file (OklahomaHighways2007.exe), double-click on the downloaded file and it will install to your computer. No changes to your Windows System are made by this installation.

For a few quick links to the Oklahoma City maps, click the small and not very readable versions below to open the much larger files ... in the web page views, 3 sizes of maps are available ...

On edit, I now see that this map is available in PDF format from ODOT ... click here for the entry page. Oh, well ...
