I thought Memorial was highway 64?

I think north of Admiral at one time it was Hwy 75 as Admiral was Hwy 75 as well.

Out south it is.  Up north, it aligns with Memorial up in the Vera and Ramona area.

It is south of the Creek Turnpike until it turns east around 171st.

I remember 64 being on Memorial south of the BA until 169 was finished to Memorial.

It looks more like what's left of Memorial edges over to the west to join 75.

I have looked at a lot of old maps.  I don't remember seeing US75 come as far south as 111th & Memorial.  It may have been coincident with Memorial farther north.

Take a look.  I may have missed something.

Here's one account of US75 fro downtown Tulsa east to the traffic circle, and then north through Owasso. Perhaps that was the 1927 alignment but I really don't know. I usually begin on Memorial at 76th and go north. Really, if you stay on the Portland cement, you can't help but follow the old road.

Very interesting.
Yea, 75 isn't with 2 miles of Memorial north of Tulsa so I was lost.

Thanks for the info all!
