Whether you're new to the area, visiting or just passing through, it's important to get the lay of the land, particularly since the Oklahoma City metro is quite spread out. Below is a quick and easy reference table with all of the major highways and interstates in the area. It includes details on location, points of interest, and possible toll costs.
Speaking of tolls, consider getting an Oklahoma PIKEPASS. Not only does it save you money on turnpike driving, it saves you a lot of time. This is true when driving long distances across the state but also with city driving. For example, the Kilpatrick Turnpike significantly speeds up travel on the north side of the metro. Also, keep in mind that an Oklahoma PIKEPASS can be used in Kansas and North Texas.
Before you set out onto the highways and turnpikes, make sure all is safe. For example, if winter conditions are possible, learn how to track accidents that could slow you down. And the Oklahoma Department of Transportation has a number of traffic cameras all around the metro, allowing you to easily check conditions and flow.
