U.S. 62

Highway Review:
U.S. 62 is an unusual highway. It starts in El Paso, Texas, at the Mexican border, and goes all the way to Niagara Falls, New York. It is signed east-west until Kentucky, then it heads north the rest of the way. It travels through Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York.

In Oklahoma U.S. 62 begins five miles west of Hollis. It runs east-west until Lawton, then it joins Interstate 44 and starts heading north for a few miles before exiting off. In Anadarko, U.S. 62 (co-signed with U.S. 277 at this point) heads east once again before the highways curve to the north once again east of Blanchard. U.S. 62 heads north with Interstate 44 East and head into Oklahoma City. U.S. 62 then heads east on Interstate 240 between I-44 and Interstate 35, then U.S. 62 goes north with Interstate 35 for about 10 miles before U.S. 62 heads east. The highway runs parallel to Interstate 40 for most of the remainder of its distance in Oklahoma. In Henryetta, U.S. 62 heads north with U.S. 75 for 12 miles before U.S. 62 starts heading east towards Muskogee. At this point the highway begins making strides away from Interstate 40 and finds its last major town in Tahlequah. Slightly less than 30 miles east of Tahlequah, the highway enters Arkansas, and Fayetteville is just a few miles away.
