Skydance Bridge in OKC

SkyDance Bridge

One of the many changes to Oklahoma City over the past few years has been the addition of the Skydance pedestrian bridge. It is a construction, crossing interstate 40, the interstate that more or less goes across all of Oklahoma horizontally.

The bridge was a result of a design competition between 16 firms, which was won by Hans Butzer and his architect team (the designer of the Oklahoma City National Memorial). It was inspired by the “dance” of the scissor-tailed flycatcher, Oklahoma’s state bird. At its tallest point, the structure reaches as high as 185 feet up in the air.

I loved the look of this bridge as it stretches over the highway, towards the home of Oklahoma City Thunder, with changing light colors, and a beautifully lit walkway.

If you are ever nearby, it is worth a visit, stop by and take a stroll across this magnificent structure.
