TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Leaders in Tulsa say the majority of projects funded by the 15-year Vision Tulsa program will be funded in the next five years.

Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum released a timeline Wednesday of when projects will be funded under the tax, which voters approved extending last year. The schedule calls for more than $400 million to be spent on 27 projects over the next five years.

Those projects include improvements to the Zink Dam, a new BMX national headquarters, infrastructure improvements at Tulsa’s airport, an expansion at the Gilcrease Museum and a new pedestrian bridge.

The city plans to begin issuing bonds this spring for the projects.
