The Tulsa Metropolis Council toured South Tulsa Wednesday, as a part of a collection of district excursions for councilors to see all elements of the town.
The Council District 8 tour, led by Councilor Phil Lakin, targeted largely on transportation wants.
“The worth of bringing individuals out on a District 8 tour is that they see what our roads seem like, and what our neighborhoods seem like, and what our points are,” mentioned Lakin.
The Council spent nearly an hour on the $29 million undertaking to widen South Yale Avenue from two to 6 lanes.
The undertaking will proceed by way of subsequent summer season.
“We have been ready 25 years to do that undertaking, wanted to do it,” mentioned Lakin.
Councilor Crista Patrick, who represents northeast Tulsa, mentioned whereas Lakin’s district has visitors congestion, her constituents cope with extra financial issues.
”The wants out listed here are a lot completely different than the wants of my constituents, so it is actually good to get to see it first-hand,” she mentioned.
