OK 56 (2006-Present)

Highway Review:
OK 56 is an almost 90-mile long highway that runs from the eastern terminus of OK 39 and U.S. 377/OK 3W/99 several miles north of Ada to U.S. 75 in Okmulgee. For its distance, it doesn't see too many other highways. Its first 23 miles have no highway intersections, and neither do its final 34 miles.

As previously stated, OK 56 begins at the same intersection as OK 39's eastern terminus is located at U.S. 377/OK 3W/99 just north of the Canadian River. OK 56 heads east, then north towards Wewoka, where it shares two miles with Business U.S. 270. It also sees OK 59's eastern terminus while duplexed with the old routing of U.S. 270. OK 48 intersects OK 99A in the town of Cromwell, and intersects Interstate 40 less than three miles later. After crossing the interstate, OK 56 takes a mostly easterly track for several miles before meeting U.S. 62/OK 27 in Okemah, where it heads north for a couple blocks before heading east where U.S. 62 heads west and OK 27 has its northern terminus. After leaving Okemah behind, OK 56 winds its way near the Okmulgee State Park and the Okmlugee State Game Management Area, and finds its northern terminus as U.S. 75 in Okmulgee. A Loop 56 route exists between U.S. 75 and U.S. 62, bypassing Okmulgee on its northern and eastern sides.

U.S. 75, Okmulgee

OK 56 North at U.S. 75 in Okmulgee. There is no end sign at
this terminus. U.S. 75 North says that OK 56 continues north,
but there is no indication from OK 56 North that it continues,
and there is an end sign at Loop 56's western terminus north
of this stoplight, so it's safe to assume that this is the end of
OK 56. (Photo taken 1/7/03)
