OK 36

Highway History:
OK 36 once went as far north as Fort Sill. According to the official Oklahoma state map from 1953, the highway was duplexed with U.S. 277 and U.S. 281 from OK 36's current northern terminus to the corner of 11th & Bishop, then OK 36 went north on Fort Sill Blvd. to its northern end. Actually, the official state maps still show OK 36 in Lawton, even though the highway has not gone that far north for several years!

Highway Review:
OK 36 begins just north of the Texas State Line at Interstate 44 Exit 1. It runs north on its own for four miles then it goes west with U.S. 70 for 10 miles before heading north again in Grandfield. It heads north for 14 miles and OK 5 joins the highway for a mile south of Chattanooga. Just west of Chattanooga, the highway heads east. Sixteen miles later, OK 36 ends at Interstate 44 just south of Lawton.
