Route description

Opened in 1969, the 53-mile (85.2 km) route begins at the Broken Arrow Expressway (SH-51) southeast of Tulsa, near an intersection with the Creek Turnpike. The Turnpike ends at Interstate 40 west of Webbers Falls. There are two toll collection plazas located along the length of the Muskogee Turnpike. The Muskogee Main Line Plaza is located appx. 10 miles south of the city of Muskogee and has an in-line Pikepass lane, an exact change lane, and an attended collection lane. Speed limits through this plaza are 30 MPH for all vehicles. The Coweta Main Line Plaza is located appx. 15 miles north of the city of Muskogee at the Coweta exit, and has 4 collection lanes; 1 exact change lane, 2 attended lanes, and a pikepass lane that is independent from the plaza. Speed limits at this plaza are 30 MPH for all vehicles except Pikepass vehicles which bypass the collection plaza.

A two-axle vehicle currently pays $3.00 ($2.90 with Pikepass) to drive the full length of the Turnpike. To permit movement of local traffic in the city of Muskogee, the section between US-62 and SH-165 is designated a free expressway. Located appx 10 miles north of the city of Muskogee is a newly renovated concession plaza which reopened in April, 2011. This concession plaza has an EZ Go gasoline station selling Phillips 66 gasoline, as well as a McDonalds restaurant. The concession plaza has free restrooms, is open 24 hours a day, and is located in the median for easy access from both travel directions. Groundwork was laid out for a second concession plaza just north of the Muskogee Main Line collection plaza; however this plaza was never built, and all pavement and ramps have since been removed.

Law enforcement along the Muskogee Turnpike is provided by Oklahoma Highway Patrol Troop XB, a special troop assigned to the turnpike.[1]
