The L.L. Tisdale Parkway is a freeway that runs through northwest Tulsa. The highway is named in honor of local Tulsa pastor, Rev. L.L. Tisdale. The parkway was originally known as the Osage Expressway, as part of a cancelled freeway project to Pawhuska, the capitol of the Osage Nation.
The expressway begins as a limited access highway at an interchange with I-244/US 64/US 75/US 412 just outside Downtown Tulsa. The freeway runs north weaving into Osage County in Sand Springs before returning to Tulsa County in Tulsa. The expressway becomes a surface street just south of the Gilcrease Expressway before ending at West 36th Street North in Northern Tulsa. It is the Osage Nation's only expressway.
All exits are unnumbered.
