State Highway 102 (abbreviated SH-102 or OK-102) is a north-south state highway in central Oklahoma. It runs for 52.9 miles[1] (85.1 km) from Wanette, Oklahoma to Wellston, Oklahoma. It has no lettered spur routes.


[edit] Route description

SH-102 just north of SH-59B.

SH-102 begins in downtown Wanette and heads northward to meet State Highway 39, which it very briefly overlaps. After splitting off, it heads due north to Tribbey. Two miles north of Tribbey, it meets the western terminus of SH-59B, west of Macomb. Eight miles later, it crosses State Highway 9 east of Pink. It provides access to the Shawnee Reservoir before meeting Interstate 40.

SH-102 merges into Interstate 40 at Exit 178 (Dale/Bethel Acres) and splits at Exit 176 (McLoud Rd.). Between these two exits, SH-102 overlaps Interstate 40, US-270, and State Highway 3. After splitting off, it heads northward to meet State Highway 270 in McLoud, which it briefly overlaps. After splitting off in downtown McLoud, it heads northward to cross into Lincoln County. It crosses over Interstate 44 (the Turner Turnpike) with no interchange. The highway ends near Wellston at State Highway 66.

[edit] History

SH-102 was briefly extended to SH-66B when work on SH-66 caused its traffic to be detoured onto SH-66B.[2] After the work was completed, SH-102 was truncated back to SH-66, though the connector road still exists and remains open to traffic.

Prior to 2007, the bridge over I-44 was only one lane wide. This bridge was demolished and replaced, necessitating a detour along U.S. Highway 177, which parallels the route. I-44 was also reduced to two lanes during the rebuild. SH-102 now crosses the turnpike on a modern two-lane bridge.
