Sidewalk Highway / Ribbon RoadBetween Narcissa and Afton, OK
GPS: 36.728592, -94.927492
The old pavement starts about 1/4 mile west of this intersection. You won't have any trouble knowing when you start driving on the old road ... bumpity, bumpity, bump, bump! This section of the old pavement is only about 2.75 miles long.
This is where you take the rounded corner to turn south onto S 520 across from the white rail fence. This is the last corner on the Ribbon Road. You might have noticed that the road names along the Ribbon Road are sequential, 540, 530, 520 etc. Each of the roads is a mile apart and they follow section lines. A "section" is a one mile square piece of land and the "section lines" are the edges of a section.
There is a pair of "S" curves that take you up and across a bridge over the turnpike. These "S" curves and the bridge are not part of the original road.
Shortly after you cross the turnpike bridge you cross a set of trail tracks and then soon come to the stop sign at Hwy 69. Cross Hwy 69 and curve right on the last little bit of the Ribbon Rd and the Will Rogers Highway Marker.
The inscription on the front of the marker reads as follows:
And that's where what's left of the the famous "Sidewalk Highway" ends!
