Worst of OKC: Worst Road

12:01 AM EDT on August 8, 2008

Honestly, I couldn't find a good relevant picture of a road, so I figured it would be better to just post a moderately safe for work picture of Angelina Jolie. This is much better than Clark Matthews' idea, which was to post a picture of Brent Skarky.

Anyway, read about and vote for the worst Metro area road after the jump.

Broadway (in Edmond)
In the 1960's "“ when about 57 people drove on it each day "“ Broadway probably wasn't that bad of road. Now that about 57-million people drive on it, it's become one hell of a cluster f*ck. Seriously, you can probably listen to three Sports Animal commercial breaks in the time it takes to drive from 33rd to 2nd street.

NW Expressway
See Broadway Extension.

N. Penn (through Nichols Hills)
This is by far the snootiest road in Oklahoma City. I heard that in the 1980's that the citizens of Nichols Hills considered banning all non-European cars from even traveling down this stretch of two lane slowness, but that the idea was nixed once they realized no one would be able to nanny their children, mow their lawns and clean their homes.

S. Robinson
Unless you're a fan of blatant low level prostitution or Hinder, there is really no reason to even be on S. Robinson.

Shields Bridge
I'm not a "roads scholar" like Brent Rinehart (it's his pun, not mine), but whoever decided to build this super road should never be allowed to make a meaningful decision ever again in their life. For those who don't know (and I imagine most don't, because nobody drives on the thing), the Shields Ave. Bridge is a nice six lane stretch of road that goes from downtown OKC to SE 29, or more accurately put, from nowhere to nowhere. This thing is so empty you would think that Robert Allen lives underneath it and gobbles up unassuming motorists for dinner.
