Today's mini-trip

This afternoon, I did a short roadtrip around northwest OKC & Edmond. I took pictures of the Lake Hefner Parkway and of the new U.S. 77 interchange at Memorial Road & Kelley Avenue. Pictures have been uploaded to Flickr.
  • All the new signs on U.S. 77 are in Clearview (no surprise there)
  • The new overpasses over Memorial Road & Kelley Avenue are decorated quite well (especially for Oklahoma). It seems like some bridges built in Oklahoma during the past year or two have had this type of decoration. The new Memorial & Kelley overpasses look somewhat like the new OK 102 bridge over Interstate 44 near Wellston.
  • OK 74 goes from a four-lane freeway to a narrow two lane road just north of Memorial Road. Eventually, the freeway will extend one mile north to N.W. 150th Street. For now, though, OK 74 traverses the narrow, dangerous, and overburdened Portland Avenue.
55 days until the San Diego Trip!
