Tulsa Port Doubles Its Land Holdings

The Tulsa Port of Catoosa and the Public Service Company of Oklahoma (PSO) announced on October 10 the transfer of more than 2,000 acres in Inola, Okla., to the City of Tulsa-Rogers County Port Authority.

The authority plans to develop the site to attract large-scale economic development projects.

The property is located along the Verdigris River, which is part of the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System, and connects to the authority’s existing facilities at the Tulsa Port of Catoosa.  With both barge and rail access available at the Inola site, the location is ideal for much-needed expansion of Port operations and for future industrial development, the port authority said.

“We are very thankful to PSO for having faith in the port authority as the right partner to bring development experience to this property and assist industrial and manufacturing facilities to locate and thrive in the region,” said David Yarbrough, port director. “As we enter the 50th anniversary of the Tulsa Port of Catoosa and the completion of the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System, we are excited to start this new chapter in our history and create opportunity for the next generation.”
