State Highway 17, abbreviated as SH-17 or OK-17, is an east-west highway in Oklahoma. It is a relatively short highway, extending for only 20.9 miles (33.6 km) from US-277 to Business US-81 in Rush Springs. It has no lettered spur routes.
SH-17 begins at U.S. Highway 277
in Elgin, Oklahoma
. Heading southeast from there, it intersects State Highway 65
. It then runs for 13 more miles (20.9 km) to US-81
before ending at US-81's Rush Springs business loop.
The present-day State Highway 17 was commissioned between May 1936 and April 1937. Originally, the all-dirt highway began in Sterling and ran to Rush Springs; the Sterling–Elgin portion of the highway was at that time part of SH-65. However, at some point between April 1937 and April 1938, SH-65 was truncated to the south, and SH-17 was extended west to Elgin along the former route of SH-65. No futher changes have been made to SH-17's route since.
