State Highway 141 is an 8.24 miles (13.26 km)[2] state highway in Sequoyah Co., Oklahoma, USA. It connects U.S. Highway 59 to U.S. Highway 64 and runs through Gans. It has no lettered spur routes.

SH-141 was first added to the state highway system in 1958 as a gravel highway and was gradually paved between then and 1966.

Route description[edit]

State Highway 141 begins at US-59 east of Robert S. Kerr Lake, south of Sallisaw. From this terminus, SH-141 proceeds due east for about 3 miles (4.8 km). The highway then turns north for about a half mile (0.3 km) before resuming its easterly course. The highway continues east for about 3 miles (4.8 km) more, passing south of Pine Mountain. The highway then turns northeast to pass through the town of Gans, where it crosses a railroad track. Northeast of town, the road turns to the east once again before coming to an end at US-64.[3]

History[edit]

SH-141 first appeared on the 1959 official state map, implying that it was commissioned the previous year. At this time, SH-141 had the same extent as it does today, but was completely gravel, and terminated north of Gans rather than turning back east as it does today.[1] By 1961, the highway had been rerouted to end at its current eastern terminus; the portion of highway east of Gans was also paved at this time.[4] In 1966 the remainder of the highway was paved.[5]

Junction list[edit]

The entire route is in Sequoyah County.
