Boulder Bridge's Final Days

Boulder Bridge's Final Days

This article first appeared in the Tulsa World

by: Staff reports

A demolition crane was recently moved onto downtown's closed Boulder Bridge. The $7.3 million replacement of the bridge was the most expensive of the bridge work approved by city voters in a streets package last year. The bridge, which dates to the 1930s and stretches from First to Archer streets over the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway tracks, was closed to vehicle traffic in 1998 and to pedestrians last year after becoming increasingly unstable. Demolition of the old structure is set to begin later this month.
