U.S. Highway 412 is the newest highway in town, but no new roads were built for it. Instead, the highway shares routes with exisiting highways, as shown here at I-244 and Delaware Avenue, and has replaced designations on others. According to reports, U.S. 412 recently was extended from Tennessee across Arkansas and Oklahoma to Woodward, Oklahoma, where it terminates (for now) at U.S. 183/U.S. 270. The highway has replaced S.H. 33 between Catoosa and Siloam Springs, Ark. As a result, S.H. 33 now has been truncated to the S.H. 66 intersection in Sapulpa, which now leaves two routes along I-44 in Tulsa (I-44/S.H. 66). U.S. 412 joins I-44 in Catoosa and follows it about four miles to I-244, at which point it joins I-244 and follows it to the Northwest Interchange of the Inner Dispersal Loop. It then joins the Keystone Expressway (co-signed with U.S. 64 and S.H. 51) and follows it and the Cimarron Turnpike, which previously had no highway designation, to reconnect with U.S. 64 at I-35. U.S. 412 then follows U.S. 64 into Enid and then joins S.H. 15 from Enid to Woodward. The new designation creates a continous route from Tennessee to northwest Oklahoma. This photograph was taken December 17, 1988.
