Manhattan Road & Bridge to Build Double-decker Arkansas River Bridge

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) has awarded Manhattan Road & Bridge Co. the contract to build the I-44 West Bound Replacement Bridge over the Arkansas River. At approximately $63 million, the contract is the second largest to ever be issued by ODOT.  The project includes the removal of the existing I-244 (Westbound) Arkansas River Bridge, including the 17th Street off-ramp, and reconstruction of a new double-decker bridge structure. The project bridge and road connection work will be almost one mile long, with the primary river bridge being 3,296 feet long.

When complete, the project will be Tulsa’s first “multi-modal” bridge. It will incorporate a new section of the I-44 westbound highway, two dedicated future rail lines and an area for bicycle/pedestrian traffic into a double-decker style bridge. The pedestrian and bicycle bridge will include an elaborate decorative Art Deco motif designed canopy, providing pedestrians a view downstream of the Arkansas River.
