Well, Tulsa, Oklahoma is not New York City, but Pedestrians being distracted by texting and other tech device activities is not only affecting public safety in big cities, but in suburban neighborhoods and rural towns as well.  For over 5 months at the intersection of 41st & Harvard, Becco Construction Constractor’s workers and independent contractors have been busy upgrading a road surfacing project that was financed by a 2008 penny sales tax bond.  This project is on schedule and expected to complete in another two weeks according to Becco Construction Contractor’s Company.  

PACE TULSA AGS Foundation, wrote an initial op ed story about the Ranch Acres Covenant Community.  For more insight about this part of Tulsa, OK read our historical perspective about Ranch Acres.
