Visitors center sought at Tulsa transportation park March 29, 2008

Posted by Ron Warnick in Attractions.

The blog for RedFork Main Street reports that the Southwest Tulsa Chamber of Commerce is applying for a cost-share grant to build a visitors center for the Route 66 transportation theme park under construction.

The chamber is filling out an application to the National Scenic Byways program for the grant.

Dittman said he and other Chamber members are working on an application for a federal Scenic Byways grant that would fund 80 percent of the estimated $330,000 cost of converting the bottom floor of the two-story “Chamber house” on Southwest Boulevard to a visitors’ center complete with rest rooms, interpretive materials, and information about local businesses and attractions.

The deadline for submitting the grant application is Monday. The grant is expected to be awarded by December, Dittman said.
