Tulsa is under construction by Austal USA in Mobile, Alabama. A ceremonial laying of the keel was held at the Austal USA shipyards in Mobile on 11 January 2016. Former Tulsa mayor Kathy Taylor was the ship's sponsor, with a delegation of Tulsa officials including incumbent mayor Dewey F. Bartlett, Jr. also in attendance. Because the ship is being assembled from prefabricated modules, Tulsa was already 60 percent complete at the time of the keel laying.
Modules for the future USS Tulsa (LCS 16) and the future USS Charleston (LCS 18) are in the early phases of construction.
