Biennial inspections of the undersides of Tulsa bridges across the Arkansas River are currently in progress and will continue through Thursday, Sept. 26. The City of Tulsa has contracted with the Garver engineering firm to inspect under the bridges using a “snooper truck.”
The schedule is listed below. Work hours are 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. or 5 p.m., weather dependent.
Inspection of the Southwest Boulevard bridge was completed on Sept. 19 and 20.
Inspections underneath the bridges are conducted every two years (odd numbered years), and the surfaces of the bridges are inspected in the years alternating between the underside inspections (even numbered years).
