The City of Tulsa-Boulder Bridge Project is now open to the public. The old bridge, built in 1929, became so dangerous that it was closed to vehicle traffic more than a decade ago and eventually became too dangerous even for foot traffic. After county voters approved Vision 2025, the Bank of Oklahoma (BOK) Center was built and entrepreneurs began to open new restaurants in the Brady and Blue Dome districts. A new baseball park, ONEOK Field, was built. In the meantime, lofts and apartments were being built throughout downtown. There were ways to get from the downtown core to the Brady District, an area roughly from Archer Street to Cameron and from Denver Avenue to Greenwood Avenue, but downtown needed a better way to get over there. The Boulder Bridge supplied that need.
What makes it interesting?
This is no ordinary bridge. It has special lighting and an extra-wide sidewalk for pedestrians. It also has $360,000 worth of artwork attached. Students from the Tulsa Technology Center created the artwork that depicts events in Tulsa’s history. Downtown finally has its new gateway to the Brady District. It took a long time, but it was worth the wait.
