Should the city of Oklahoma City and the State of Oklahoma consider
building a Port Of Oklahoma City. Oklahoma City would take over the tittle
of the Most Inland Port In America , and increase the industrial potential
of the Oklahoma City Metro Area by leaps and bounds. Oklahoma City
could also enter into the cruise industry , by promoting cruises to (A)
The Northern Route..Tulsa..Litrtle Rock...Memphis..St. Louis...Louisville...
Cincinnatti...Quad Cities Iowa..Minneapolis/St. Paul (B)The Southern Route
Tulsa Oklahoma...Little Rock...Memphis...Baton Rogue...New Orleans..
Mobile AL...Tampa/St. Peterburg..Miami (C) The Southern Route (2) Tulsa..
Little Rock... Memphis... Baton Rouge....New Orleans..Houston..Mexico

Good idea, bulldoze the row of buildings and parking lots on either side of the little canal in Bricktown and widen it.


But on a serious note.... I really wish there were some push by Oklahoma to get the other states down stream to widen the docks. Tulsas port is not able to reach its full potential because of the old, narrow, docking system downstream. Most barges are of a larger size these days and cant fit through the older docks. But it doesnt make any sense if Oklahoma widens theirs if we cant get some of the other states downstream to do likewise. This would have been a perfect, infrastructure/economic stimulus/investment that would pay off for generations. Its just not an issue thats on the average persons radar in OKC or even known for that matter. And as one can guess, its yet another impossible mountain for Tulsa to climb trying to get it on OKCs to do list.

Sure seems like Oklahoma gets pooped on a lot. Chicken poop in Tulsas water supply and now pig crap in the Oklahoma River! Hopefully OKC can sue like Tulsa did, because I would hate to see it happen again. Im just thankful we dont have to drink from it or it would be a MAJOR concern.

The Oklahoma river is actually making a huge step towards having a fantastic rowing venue.

I wasn't aware of the problem with the "LOCKS" being undersized
I thou... that the Kerr Mcgee could handle "Ocean Going Vessels"
and any size "Barges"....as well as the Mississippi River..and the
other rivers to Cincinnatti and Louisville....
