Google maps should tell you...


I used to take I44 or US281 several years ago from Wichita falls TX up to Medicine park OKLA just beyond Lawton OK to camp in Wichita Mtns Wildlife Refuge... I don't recall any fees on I44 up to that point... I bet the fees start at the HE BAILEY Turnpike TOLL STATION up past Lawton at Chicksha/Amber OKLA...

You should be OK staying on I44 to get on US70 with no fees I would think...

We used to get off I44 just after you get inside OKLA and head up US281 which runs parallel to I44 to the East so we could go thru places like Geronimo and some other Indian named places...

I also just read this off of GOGGLE SEARCH if you can make heads or tails out it...

"The H. E. Bailey Turnpike takes a generally south to north route from Wichita Falls to Lawton before turning northeast toward Oklahoma City. The turnpike's 25 miles (40 km) southern section begins at US 70, 6 miles (9.7 km) north of the Texas state line. US 277 and US 281 leave I-44 at US 70, and together run parallel to the Turnpike. The turnpike runs north-northeast for 15 miles, intersecting SH 5 along with US 277 and US 281. A toll plaza is located underneath the SH 5 overpass; loop ramps feed all entering and exiting traffic into the toll plaza. Just north of SH 5, a Service Area is located in the median of the turnpike, featuring food, fuel, and restroom amenities, as well as an Oklahoma Welcome Center. The turnpike then continues north for ten more miles until it again reaches US 277 and US 281, also intersecting SH 36. The turnpike temporarily ends at this interchange, and the two US Routes join a free ODOT-maintained I-44 through Lawton. "

I looked at google and couldnt really tell for sure where the tolls started. I want to go from Breckenridge, TX to Choctaw OK without using a toll road, Im sure there are several ways to get to I-35 but was thinking of going to Wichita Falls and taking US-70 North of Wichita Falls to I-35

The I44 toll gate is just north of the US 70 interchange.

From my map, it looks like US 70 is where the Toll Road begins. So get off at the exit there.

287 to 70 at Vernon TX isn't a toll road. The tolls start about 5 miles into Oklahoma.

Take 82 east out of Wichita Falls thru Henrietta to 81. Take 81 north this is a nice road 4 lane divided most of the way.
Take 81 to I-40. I-40 thru Ok. city to Choctaw.

or

From Breckenridge.
Take I20 over to 281 then north on 281 to Jacksboro
then 59 to Bowie then 81 north out of Bowie.
