Highway names[edit]

I have gone through and removed some misleading names from some of the non-freeways. In the case of US 62/Meridian and SH 76/Council, both of those highways use a portion of the road named that in McClain County, which are not directly connected to the roads of the same name in Oklahoma County (being interrupted by both the Canadian River and Cleveland County). SH-9 only follows Imhoff Road on the far east side of Norman; the portion that would be considered a major highway, the expressway section, runs mostly south of Imhoff and in fact intersects it a mile or two east of I-35. I assume N. 32nd St. is the Newcastle street that SH-37 follows; in any event, SH-37 also follows S. 4th St. in Moore (and some other street in the portion of Oklahoma City west of Moore), so since there are three different local names for this highway in the metro it's really best to leave them all empty.

We should also consider removing the names for many of the interstates, because many of them are so obscure as to not even appear on maps, much less signs or common usage. —Scott5114 [EXACT CHANGE ONLY] 01:27, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
