Interstate 235

Highway History/Review:
Interstate 235 spans five miles on its trek through central Oklahoma City. It begins at the interchange of Interstate 35 and 40. The freeway is signed with U.S. 77 its whole distance. The section from N. 36th St. to Interstate 44 was completed in the 1970s. The southern three miles were completed in 1989 during the 100-year celebration of the Oklahoma Land Run, thus, the highway is known as the Centennial Expressway. After the highway was completed, the freeway was awarded the Interstate 235 designation. The older section is 4 lanes (2 in each direction) and lacks exit numbers. The newer portion is 6 lanes wide and has exit numbers.

Interstate 235 starts out its northerly trek with an exit for Sheridan Ave., which also leads to the Bricktown entertainment district. The other two northbound exits to access the downtown area are at Lincoln Blvd. (Exit 1D), and Harrison Ave. (Exit 1E) In the southbound lanes there are exits for N. 6th St. (Exit 1F) and N. 10th St. (Exit 1G) The remaining exits are for N.E. 23rd St. (Exit 2A), N.E. 36th St. (unmarked Exit 3), and N.E. 50th St./Santa Fe Ave. (unmarked Exit 4A). The Interstate 44 exits would probably be numbered Exits 4B & C. The freeway then transitions into the Broadway Extension and U.S. 77 continues northbound heading towards Edmond. This section of Interstate 235 is scheduled for reconstruction in the next several years.

Interstate 235 South at Exit 1G - N. 10th St./
Oklahoma Health Center. The right panel
was replaced in January 2004 after someone
spray painted the other one. For a few days,
temporary variable message signs
displayed a phone number to call for
information on the sign graffiti artist. (Top

Interstate 235 North approaching Exit 3 - N.
36th St. - 1/2 mile, Exit 4A - N. 50th St. -
1 1/2 miles, and Interstate 44/U.S. 77 -
1 3/4 miles. This is the final time exit numbers
are seen on Interstate 235 North. Another
item of interest is that the sign states that
U.S. 77 is 1 3/4 miles ahead, when U.S. 77
is actually duplexed with Interstate 235 for
its entire length! (Photo taken 4/11/03)
