Sand Springs starts work toward commuter rail

SAND SPRINGS, Okla. (AP) - City officials in Sand Springs are taking steps toward re-establishing a commuter-rail link between Sand Springs and downtown Tulsa.

City Manager Doug Enevoldsen says a rail link is years away from reality, but he says the meetings have been held with Sand Springs Railway officials to discuss the project.

The city is hoping for money from President Barack Obama's proposed economic stimulus package and has submitted a proposal to begin building infrastructure for the rail link.

Sand Springs had an interurban trolley link to Tulsa from 1911 until 1955.
