Based on your addition of the sign (thanks for adding it) it's only
500 feet (150 m) from the exit ramp, which is where OSM currently has
US 169 ending (and where the relation has had it ending since well
before this little brouhaha). This is pretty standard for end sign
placement to reduce sign clutter at the precise end.

Also note http://www.okladot.state.ok.us/hqdiv/p-r-div/maps/control-maps/tulsa3.pdf
(inset 13) which has US 169 ending between the ramp and the overpass.
