Showers of Sunshine depicts
a scene from the H.E. Bailey turnpike in Grady County,
about one-quarter mile south of the tollbooth gate.
The H.E. Bailey Turnpike was
authorized by the State Legislature in 1953. The original
86.4 miles opened in 1964, and the 8.2 mile extension connecting
State Highway 9 to Norman was opened in 2001.
