Tulsa city leaders discussing solution for bridge that cuts through Greenwood

TULSA, Okla. (KOKI) — Tulsa City Councilor Kara Joy Mckee says her and a few other councilors are trying to coordinate meetings for public input on the I-244 bridge that cuts through Greenwood.

City leaders say they are looking for black Tulsans and descendants especially, to give input on what should happen.

Some ideas are closing it off and making it a boulevard, forcing trucks to go around or burying it all together.

Mckee and councilwoman Vanessa Hall-Harper hope to have meetings set by the Fall.

Hall-Harper says she is in contact with U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg.
