Interstate 44 crosses Oklahoma from southwest to northeast, from Texas to Missouri. Along the way, it passes through three of the state’s largest cities, Lawton, Tulsa, and Oklahoma City. Between Oklahoma City and the Missouri state line, it follows the route of the famous Mother Road, Route 66. It is also the numerical designation for three of the state’s turnpikes—the Turner Turnpike, Will Rogers Turnpike, and the H.E. Bailey Turnpike. No collection of Oklahoma transportation memorabilia would be complete without a sign from Interstate 44.
We made this Oklahoma Interstate 44 marker to the exact 1957 standard from the origins of the Eisenhower Interstate Highway System. This design was supplanted by the modern shield style—often with the state name omitted!—in 1971. It gets harder and harder to find the original-style Interstate route markers in many states as the years go on. You may not be able to easily find this style of sign on the road, but we can bring it back to life and into your hands.
This sign is flat printed on heavy gauge steel, with completely accurate layout and fonts. It comes in 18 and 24 inches. It is a non-reflective sign—perfect for display indoors or outdoors. (If you would like a different size version, or a reflective one, please contact me, as I can certainly make one!)
