These photos are all from Day 3 of my OKC trip, and the first day of the meet itself. This is on I-40 east between MacArthur and Meridian.

On the tour, we took I-40 from the west side of town to downtown.

Driving along Reno Avenue in OKC.

Streets in this area of Bricktown have been renamed in honor of Oklahoma celebrities.

Our first views of the new I-40 expressway under construction, to replace the elevated expressway at left.

This will be the westbound side of the new I-40.

The two carriageways have a difference in elevation.

This shot shows the elevation difference between the eastbound lanes (right) and westbound lanes (left).

I got to drive on a street named for a childhood hero -- Oklahoma native Johnny Bench, a star on the Cincinnati Reds teams of the 1970s.
