Oklahoma City Intermodal Transportation Hub Tour: Oklahoma City’s Intermodal Transportation Hub has as its centerpiece the historic Santa Fe Depot, recently listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The station, built in 1934, has been rehabilitated, including the grand hall and common spaces. The 20,685 square foot Art Deco station provides Amtrak with improved ticketing, baggage handling, and waiting areas. A new streetscape along E.K. Gaylord Boulevard will welcome pedestrians, bicyclists, buses, taxis, and the modern streetcar while encompassing the City’s Project 180. Finally, open plazas will welcome pedestrian travel between downtown, the station and Bricktown. A TIGER Grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation is providing 48% of project funding with the balance coming from the Association of Central Oklahoma Governments (ACOG), the Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT), and the City of Oklahoma City’s MAPS 3 program. Rick Lueb, Principal, TAP Architecture, and Kaye Burlison, Project Manager/Architect, City of Oklahoma City, will lead the tour.
