I've heard rumors that a subway was planned for Tulsa and a station was completed but the project was canceled. Supposedly you can reach this subway station via one of the many tunnels that run underneath Tulsa. Has anyone heard any proof one way or the other about this subway?

I'm afraid it may be the result of some very unexperienced people finding a large junction room in a storm sewer and thinking it was part of an old subway station. From what I have heard about it, that must be it. So, total BS in other words. BUT, I could be wrong...

Someone claimed to have been in tunnels with lots of graffiti and found a "train platform" and of course thought it was an old subway. I'm 90% sure I know what tunnels they are talking about.

If this "subway" actually does exist, I'll find it.


Here is a picture of the room I was talking about, the left side is an "elevated platform", and the right side could be confused with a subway tunnel, but it is definitely NOT, its been an underground creek ever since it was built in the early 20's.

Thanks for the info and that great picture. I can see how somebody might think it was a subway station.

I found a thread on abandonedOK.com that you posted regarding a rumored underground stadium in Tulsa. Have you found any more info on it? That would be a hell of a find.

Uh, well, I did find it. But its more of the undergound OF a stadium rather than an underground stadium. Thats a hint if you are familar with Tulsa history, specifically the early 50's.

Its completely sealed off and hasnt seen the light of day in about 50+ years. I'm currently trying to find a way in, but so far nothing.

You know, I've been noticing that whenever I google things mentioned on UO, any topics from here are usually in the top ten or so results, and usually have better info than you'll find elsewhere. The internet must think we know what we're talking about.

Check the newspaper morgue at the library downtown. I know the site you are talking about. There was a photo of the basement partly exposed where some construction workers broke through into it by mistake. You could see what I think were the big refrigeration motors for the ice rink.
