In my opinion, TripAdvisor users should be warned about the challenges of using the new Kilpatrick Turnpike that bypasses OK City's northeast outskirts. For visitors, navigating the the Kilpatrick and paying its tolls is quite challenging.
This particular toll road shows on most maps as a logical bypass of metropolitan congestion but my experience on that road, as a first timer, was not satisfactory. For example, there are no rest areas. Tolls are registered electronically by a device locals have in their car or else you must toss coins (no cash or credit/debit cards accepted) at a scoop in an unstaffed toll booth. That clumsy process could be troublesome in inclement weather! I held up traffic while fishing for change. Exits also involved toll booths and risked a fine for non-payment of the toll. I found little recourse on the State's Turnpike website, and there were no guidelines or tips there for new users.
All in all, I felt that using the Kilpatrick put you in a captive audience at best and sort of a trap at worst. The State's Turnpikes should be more user-friendly toward out-of-staters. Bottom line: Go a bank and get some rolls of quarters and dimes prior to using any Oklahoma Toll Roads. Does anyone else have an opinion on this?
