U.S. 177, Carney

OK 40A West at U.S. 177. There are no signs of any kind
at this terminus, no end sign, no assurance shield, no
directional signage for U.S. 177, nothing! (Photo

"END OK 40A" sign as Oklahoma's shortest state
highway comes to an end. The highway's speed limit is
set at 25 mph, but even at that speed, the highway's entire
length can be driven in 40 seconds, or less than the time
that it took to type this caption! There are no other
assurance shields on either direction of the highway.
