Downtown park, $130 millionA 70-acre park is planned along downtown’s southern edge, between the Oklahoma River and a planned boulevard which will replace the existing Interstate 40 Crosstown Expressway when it is relocated. The park would include a cafe, a lake, an amphitheater and other amenities. City leaders compare the idea to Discovery Park in Houston, Millennium Park in Chicago and Centennial Park in Atlanta.
Convention center, $280 millionA new convention center is planned on the south edge of downtown near the planned downtown park. The new center will include exhibit halls, meeting rooms, ballrooms and parking. Plans for the Cox Convention Center, opened in 1971 and now considered inadequate by city leaders, have not been finalized.
Transit, $130 millionThe money would pay for five to six miles of downtown streetcar lines and a downtown transit hub which will link streetcar, commuter rail and bus systems. Some money could also be used for building commuter rail lines, but the city is also seeking federal transportation money for commuter rail.
Oklahoma River, $60 millionAbout $25 million would go toward a whitewater kayaking venue. Ongoing coverage: MAPS 3
