Boulder Avenue Bridge Reopens

Mayor Dewey Bartlett and the University of Tulsa Pep Band celebrated the re-opening of the Boulder Avenue Bridge Feb. 4. The bridge spans the downtown railroad tracks and connects First Street and Archer Street.

The old Boulder Avenue bridge, built in 1929, was closed to traffic more than a decade ago and was demolished in 2009. The new bridge has four lanes of traffic and includes an extra-wide sidewalk for pedestrian use. The new Boulder Avenue bridge provides a link between the Brady District, the Center and the rest of the downtown area. The bridge was also designed with transit potential as a downtown trolley route.
