U.S. 75

Highway Review:
U.S. 75 runs from the Interstate 30/Interstate 45 junction near downtown Dallas to the U.S./Canada border near Noyes, Minnesota. It goes through the states of Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, and Minnesota.

In the Sooner State, U.S. 75 enters the state duplexed with U.S. 69. The road is a 4-lane divided highway with a mixture of at-grade intersections and interchanges. The two highways head through Durant and Atoka duplexed before U.S. 75 departs in north Atoka. U.S. 75 is duplexed with OK 3 from Atoka to northwest of Coalgate, a distance of almost 18 miles. After leaving OK 3 behind, U.S. 75 goes through 28 miles of no highway intersections and no towns. U.S. 270 then joins U.S. 75 for an 8.5 mile stretch before departing. U.S. 75 joins Interstate 40 and U.S. 62 near Henryetta. After leaving the interstate behind, both U.S. 75 and U.S. 62 remain joined for 13 more miles until U.S. 62 heads towards the east in Okmulgee. All of U.S. 75 north of Interstate 40 is 4-lane divided highway, with a mixture of at-grade intersections and interchanges. The highway then heads into Tulsa, where it becomes duplexed with Interstate 244 for two and a half miles before going along secret Interstate 444. After intersecting Interstate 244 a second time, U.S. 75 sheds the secret Interstate 444 designation it doesn't really have in the first place, and continues north as an expressway. After OK 20, there are no other highways until U.S. 60 in Bartlesville. Eighteen miles later and after intersections with OK 123 and OK 10, U.S. 75 narrows to two lanes once it crosses the state line into Kansas. But there are still four more states to travel through on U.S. 75 before reaching its northern end.
