Toll Roads in Oklahoma

We will be going East through OK City, Tulsa and on toward St Louis.
I hate Toll roads. Don't like Freeways much either. Drove them for almost 30 years in So Cal when I used to have to work.
From what I see, there doesn't seem to be much else available on 40 and 44.
We would much rather use state highways. Anyone here been that route? Any suggestions?

You could shoot North in NM on I-25 and then take CO-24 to I-70 and avoid the tolls. But that adds about 170 miles to your trip so you either pay for tolls or pay for gas!

I did the OK tolls roads and they are pretty smooth with some nice rest areas (the largest McD's in the world is located in one of their rest areas). I don't mind paying a toll if the road is maintained. On parts of I-95 on the east coast, you pay a toll and the road is full of potholes!

Here is a great website on the highway:

PS - When we go to St. Louis, we stay in the Casino Queen campground in East St. Louis. Very safe and you can take the train to all this sites over the river in St. Louis.

Get a copy of EZ66 (isbn0-9709951-4-8) if you are not fond of interstates and love seeing the country, this is your road. In some places, it is just plain gone, but the remaining is great. We have twice crossed Oklahoma and once paid for a little bit of toll road because we were in sort of a hurry.

Hey RVThere - recognize the picture??

Toll roads on OK are good compared to many I've been on. Some things I like about the OK tolls (40 & 44), not alot of traffic, speed limit, nice rest areas and the fuel cost at the stops are less or no more than gas stops.

They must have done some major resurfacing if the ride is that smooth. I found it to be one of the worst teeth jarring experiences I've ever driven on. JMHO.

We live in OK & I suggest that you use the tolls roads. The road is smooth unlike many of our state roads & as of right now there is very little construction going on.

Did the route a month ago choice was tolls or extra miles and gas . 40 the south route was major contruction and bone jarring rough. I would do 44 or go hundred miles out of my way .

I am relocating from Las Vegas to Pittsburg. How much do I expect to pay for the toll roads? Do I uses the change in my cup holder, keep a twenty in my pocket, or hock the cat and wife to pay for the trip? Exact figures I do not need, but a rough idea would be great. I will be using my Pathfinder and pulling a 1969 Jet 16ft travel trailer, so I will have three axles total.
