TULSA — The Oklahoma Transportation Department is working to obtain economic stimulus money to develop plans for a high-speed rail line between Tulsa and Oklahoma City. The line could one day link to other U.S. cities.

The $2 billion rail line would run north of the Turner Turnpike. The federal government has made $8 billion available in high-speed rail funding as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

The Oklahoma Transportation Department has to submit its application for funding by Oct. 2. Part of the process is to seek public input, and officials have set a Tuesday hearing in Tulsa to hear what residents think of the plan.
