Route description[edit]

SH-117 begins at SH-66 just west of Sapulpa. It briefly runs in an arc curving southeast-to-east before heading seven miles (11 km) east. SH-117 ends two miles (3 km) north of Glenpool at US-75.

SH-117 is known as Taft Avenue in Creek County, and 121st Street South in Tulsa County.

History[edit]

SH-117 was extended east along US-75, 71st Street South, and Peoria Avenue in Tulsa to Interstate 44 in 1983, coinciding with the imminent opening of the 71st Street bridge across the Arkansas River.[3] The eastern end was truncated back to its original ending at US-75 before 1990.[4]
