Biennial inspections of the undersides of Tulsa bridges across the Arkansas River are scheduled for Sept. 7-11 next week. 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. Lane closures will be the outside lanes where the inspectors are working.

Tuesday, Sept. 7 – 11th Street/Southwest Boulevard bridge

Wednesday – Thursday, Sept. 8-9 – 21st/23rd Street bridge

Friday – Saturday, Sept. 10-11 – 71st Street bridge

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).
