Questioning progress



After reading Oklahoma Gazette's recent articles about MAPS 3, I have a question. If we build this third convention center (in addition to the Cox Convention Center and the Ford Center) with MAPS 3 funds, how will future attendees to conventions in this new center get from the airport to downtown?

The Burlington Northern Santa Fe rail lines leading to the airport have already been removed in preparation for the destruction of the Union Station rail yard. That invaluable, irreplaceable rail yard will be filled with asphalt as a part of the relocated I-40 crosstown.

Another question. Is this progress?
