Is this the costliest streetscaping project in North American history ? I think that Houston spent about $40-million a few years back. This is almost four times that amount.

Also, isn't OKC getting commuter rail ?

Well, I know that the streetcar project is tied to MAPS3, but isn't commuter rail an independent issue ?

Many other inner-ctiy projects going on more north and at the river. I'll have to do compilations for those also. Maybe the Medical Center also.

Here is a very nice compilation of downtown Oklahoma City, past and present. It is an interactive map with icons that link to film and pictures of buildings and developments of the city, presented by Steve Lackmeyer and the city's newsprint.

Enjoy.
