Interstate 35 (Miles 107-146)

(Miles 107-146)

Highway Review:
(
This review continues from the Interstate 35 South page; click here to go to that page.)

Now we have entered Norman, (pop. 95,694) the 3rd-largest city in Oklahoma. Norman is a sprawling city and the home of the University of Oklahoma, 7-time NCAA football champions, most recently in 2000! Back to I-35, there are several exits to access Norman besides the OK 9 East exit, including Exit 108B (Lindsey St.), Exit 109 (Main St.), Exit 110 (Robinson St.), Exit 112 (Tecumseh Rd.) and for southbound travelers only, Exit 113 (U.S. 77). U.S. 77 is also where the highway becomes 6 lanes (3 in each direction). Actually, for southbound travelers, the 3-lane alignment was recently extended down to Tecumseh Rd. but for northbound travelers it begins with the merge of U.S. 77. The speed limit goes back up from 60 to 70 at the Tecumseh Rd. exit. A sign replacement project during the summer of 2004 replaced almost all signs between OK 9 and S.E. 19th St. in Moore.

Interstate 35 and U.S. 77 continue northbound heading towards the Oklahoma City suburb of Moore (pop. 41,138), where two strong tornadoes have hit the city in the last five years: An F5 tornado on May 3, 1999 in which the strongest tornado winds ever recorded happened (318 mph in northwest Moore), and an F4 tornado May 8, 2003, which hit just blocks south of the one four years and five days earlier. (The second one also hit where I used to work at while I was there; had to get a new car because of it!) Exit 114 (Indian Hills Rd.) accesses the southern part of Moore and northern part of Norman. Exit 116 for S. 19th St. has one of the largest Wal-Marts in the country there. The speed limit also falls here from 70 to 65. Exit 117 (OK 37/S. 4th St./Main St./N. 5th St.), Exit 118 (N. 12th St.), Exit 119A (Shields Blvd./Old U.S. 77), and Exit 119B (N. 27th St.) all access Moore.

Between Exit 119B and Exit 120 (S.E. 89th St./S.E. 82nd St.) you officially enter the Oklahoma City (pop. 506,132) city limits and the speed limit goes down to 60. This stretch of Interstate 35 was widened to six lanes in 2001. Between Exit 120 and Exit 122B (S.E. 59th St.), construction wrapped up May 27, 2004. This widened the highway to eight lanes between S.E. 89th St. and Interstate 240, and six lanes from Interstate 240 to S.E. 59th St. The stretch also includes the dangerous cloverleaf interchange with Interstate 240, which will be reconstructed from late 2004/early 2005 through 2008 or 2009. For more information about the widening, and pictures from before, during, and after the construction, please see the Interstate 35 Widening page.

After Exit 122A for S.E. 66th St., Interstate 35 has exits for S.E. 59th St. (Exit 122B), S.E. 51st St. (Exit 123A), S.E. 44th St. (Exit 123B), Grand Blvd. (Exit 124A), S.E. 29th St./S.E. 25th St. (Exit 124B), and S.E. 15th St. (Exit 125B NB; Exit 125D SB), leading up to Interstate 40 and Interstate 235. Interstate 35 exits off the main freeway, and one of the most tricky spots in Oklahoma City is seeing all the Interstate 35 northbound traffic merging into one lane to merge onto Interstate 40 East. U.S. 77 continues straight as the mainline freeway becomes Interstate 235. We'll see U.S. 77 once again in about 15 miles.

Interstate 35 and Interstate 40 are multiplexed for about a mile, and have one exit - Exit 127 (Eastern Ave./M.L. King Ave.) before splitting again. After almost 10 years of reconstruction, the eastern I-35/I-40 interchange has been completely rebuilt and is a very smooth interchange now. I'm just glad they finally got it done!

Interstate 35 is six lanes wide between Interstate 40 and U.S. 62 East (Exit 130). After that, the highway narrows to four lanes to Exit 133 (Interstate 44 West). During the four-lane stretch, there are exits for N.E. 36th St. (Exit 131), N.E. 50th St. (Exit 132A), and N.E. 63rd St. (Exit 132B).

Interstate 35's left lane at Interstate 44 West (Exit 133) becomes an exit only lane, so another lane is added just past the N.E. 63rd exit. But a mile later, that lane (which is the right lane at this point) becomes an exit only lane to Wilshire Blvd. (Exit 134), with no warning until just before the exit. Two lanes merge from Interstate 44 from the left as Interstate 35 and Interstate 44 become a 6 lane freeway. After Wilshire, the speed limit increases from 60 to 70, and there are exits for Britton Rd. (Exit 135), Hefner Rd. (Exit 136), and N.E. 122nd St. (Exit 137), home of Oklahoma City's amusement park, Frontier City. A Tourist Information Center is also located at N.E. 122nd St., along with several truck stops, which causes traffic to back up sometimes. Also just south of the N.E. 122nd St. overpass is one of the Oklahoma Highway Patrol's favorite places to hang out.

Just past N.E. 122nd St. is a large multidirectional stack interchange with I-44 East (the Turner Turnpike), and the Kilpatrick Turnpike. Entering Edmond (pop. 68,315) there are exits for Memorial Rd. (Exit 138D), S.E. 33rd St. (Exit 139), S.E. 15th St. (Exit 140), U.S. 77/OK 66 (Exit 141), Danforth Rd. (Exit 142), and Covell Rd. (Exit 143). The freeway becomes 4 lanes after the U.S. 77/OK 66 exit. After one more exit for Waterloo Rd. (Exit 146), Interstate 35 enters Logan County.

Interstate 35 North at Exit 120 - S.E. 89th
St./S.E. 82nd St. The widening project on
Interstate 35 North permanently eliminated
the S.E. 82nd St. exit from Interstate 35
North, so that street was added to this
exit sign during November 2003. The
bottom picture is what the sign gantry
looked like in October 2002, with no
variable message sign and no mention of
S.E. 82nd St. (Top photo taken 11/28/03,

Interstate 240 - Lawton/Ft. Smith. This
section of highway is being widened to

either, as the bottom picture shows. (Top

Interstate 35 South at Exit 125D - S.E. 15th
St. You may be wondering why this is Exit
125D on this side, while it is Exit 125B on
the northbound side. Before Interstate 35
was reconstructed, there were four different
exits in mile 125: S.E. 25th St., S.E. 22nd
St., and S.E. 15th St. (Can't recall the
other one). That was only on southbound, so
the S.E. 15th St. exit was given Exit 125D.
(Photo taken 8/9/03)

Interstate 35 North approaching Interstate
40 West/Interstate 235 North - 1 mile. The
sign on the left has since been replaced
with separate signs for each interstate,
while the shields on the right sign have
been replaced, as the bottom picture
shows. (Top photo taken 8/24/02, bottom

Interstate 35 North leaves the mainline
and takes a one-lane ramp to merge
onto Interstate 40 East. Straight ahead is
Interstate 235 North. The interstate shields
on the left and right panels were replaced
in January 2004.  (Top photo taken 8/24/02,
