U.S. Chamber Likes IDL Project

TULSA, OK - The Oklahoma Department of Transportation's use of stimulus money to rebuild the Inner Dispersal Loop around downtown Tulsa is drawing national attention. Members of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce say the project will do far more than smooth our roads.

"Transportation and investment like this is about business and jobs and economic recovery," said U.S. Chamber Director of Transportation Janet Kavinoky.

Members of the U.S. Chamber visited Tulsa on Thursday to see the work for themselves and say ODOT hit the nail on the head with the project.

They say the $75 million investment will increase the local economy by nearly $140 million, create some 600 jobs even boost the American GDP.

They say it's a prime example of how to maximize stimulus dollars.

And, while the U.S. Chamber says stimulus dollars are building up infrastructure in Oklahoma and the rest of the nation, they say much more needs to be done.
