State Highway 162 (SH-162/OK-162) is a 1.3-mile[1] (2.1 km) state highway in the U.S. state of Oklahoma that provides access from US-62/US-64/SH-16 to the town of Taft. The highway lies entirely within Muskogee County. Serving as a spur route itself, the highway has no letter-suffixed spur routes of its own.

Route description[edit]

SH-162 begins at the US-62/64/SH-16 expressway south of Taft, then proceeds due north for 1.32 miles (2.12 km), ending on the western edge of town.[1] The route's northern terminus is at Old Taft Road,[2] the old alignment of US-62/64.[3]

History[edit]

From the routes' establishment into the mid-1960s, US-62 and US-64 passed through Taft along what is now Old Taft Road en route to the county seat of Muskogee.[3] On July 10, 1967, however, the state shifted the routes onto the present-day expressway south of town.[4] SH-162 was created around the same time, allowing Taft to remain connected to the state highway system. The change to US-62/64/SH-16's alignment was not reflected on the official state highway map until the 1969 edition; this was also the first edition of the state highway map to show SH-162.[5]

Junction list[edit]

The entire route is in Muskogee County.
