Attached is a KML file that is the result of mashing the OpenStreetMap road data for Oklahoma up against the Hunton Group polygons from the USGS geological map for Oklahoma. I exported the lines from the roads where there was an intersection between the two. Some of the roads from the OSM data aren't accurate, and others are phantom roads or inaccessible trails. But overall, I think it's accurate enough to be useful. Hopefully others will find it useful too. Please let me know if there are other fossiliferous formations in the state for which you would like to have this type of mashup. Hunton Group Road Intersections.kml.zip
