Chickasaw Turnpike - Route Description

Route Description

The Chickasaw Turnpike takes a southwest-to-northeast route, passing through only two counties, Murray and Pontotoc. The turnpike begins in Murray County at State Highway 7 (SH-7) west of Sulphur. It then crosses over U.S. Highway 177 (US-177) north of Sulphur. US-177 has a partial diamond interchange with the Chickasaw Turnpike, allowing movements from US-177 to the turnpike's eastbound lane, and from the westbound turnpike to US-177. The turnpike continues northeast into Pontotoc County. Just north of the county line is a barrier toll plaza, the only plaza along the route. Beyond the tollbooth lies an interchange serving the town of Roff. Again, this is a partial interchange, providing access to Roff for eastbound travelers and access to the westbound lanes from Roff. The Chickasaw Turnpike then ends at SH-1.

The Chickasaw Turnpike has only two lanes for the majority of its length; however, there is a short passing lane eastbound. The Chickasaw is the only two-lane turnpike in Oklahoma. Lightly traveled, the road is used by about 2,000 vehicles per day.
