OKLAHOMA CITY – 

Tulsa Representative Regina Goodwin is holding a study at the state capitol on Tuesday to talk about possibly removing part of Interstate 244 that runs through Tulsa’s historic Greenwood District.

Goodwin says President Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill addresses portions of the interstate highway system that were built through black neighborhoods.

Goodwin says if passed, the bill would create a program to reconnect communities divided by transportation infrastructure.

According to Goodwin, President Biden mentioned I-244 as one of those highways when he was in Tulsa for the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre Centennial.
