Sierra Club kudos

Gazette staff January 2nd, 2013

It’s that time again. The yearly rankings are coming at you right and left. Best movies, best albums, best “Call Me Maybe” YouTube clip featuring dancing corgis.

But we all know the list America has been waiting for ... Best civic infrastructure, of course!

Oklahoma City’s Santa Fe Intermodal Station has edged out the Gangnam Style Boardwalk, the Binders Full of Women Carpool Lane and the Claire Danes Cryface Light Rail to become the No. 1 transportation project of the year.

OK, most of those things aren’t real. They’re just a bunch of memes we threw together to get your attention and make this item seem “so 2012.”

The Santa Fe Intermodal Transportation Hub is real, however, and so is the National Sierra Club’s list of “25 Best Transportation Projects in the United States.”

We’re excited the environmental group gave a shout-out to the forward-thinking project. When the retrofit is complete, the station will service commuter rail, light rail, streetcars, and buses. Creating the infrastructure for a less car-centric, more sustainable community might just be what this city — and this country — needs.

Oops. We forgot to pepper that paragraph with memes. Did we lose you? Carly Rae? Paul Ryan? Beliebers? Mayans? Anyone?
