The Tulsa Metropolitan Area Planning Commission approved two major projects on Wednesday.

The first is for a specialty hospital near West 71st Street and Highway 75.

Several local doctors have teamed up to build a 77-thousand square foot, 21 bed hospital that will specialize in spine and pain management.

The Tulsa City Council will have the final word on whether the new hospital will actually be constructed.

The other approval was for a truck stop at the intersection of 66th street north and Highway 75. The intersection has been subject to controversy in the past. A few officials have called it dangerous, and some have asked to have it closed.
