DESERTS & MOUNTAINS TRIP
Interstate 35 Oklahoma

Interstate 35 is considered part of the current North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) Highway, which includes Interstate 35 from its southern terminus in Laredo, Texas, to Interstate 29 in Kansas City, and Interstate 29 from Kansas City to the Canadian border near Pembina, North Dakota. The interstate's only tolled portion is in the state of Kansas, where 127 miles of Interstate 35 run along the Kansas Turnpike. The toll is $4.75 for those who travel all 127 tolled miles. On Day Ten of the Deserts & Mountains Trip, I drove Interstate 35 from Interstate 435 near Lenexa, Kansas, to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
