Vision Tulsa

The comment period has closed on the four Bridge finalists. Please check back for the final design!

We had a tremendous response to our request for bridge designs. In just three weeks we received 233 submissions that ran the full spectrum: from a talented four-year-old artist, to world-class proposals from Tulsa’s design and architectural firms. It was inspiring to see the talent we have in our city, and the love Tulsans have for improving their community. 

Following the submission deadline, the Selection Committee went to work reviewing these submissions based upon three core criteria:

  • Was the design iconic, but with Tulsa roots?
  • Did the design complement its neighbors: The Gathering Place, River Parks, and the Arkansas River’s lake and whitewater flume?
  • Was it focused on both pedestrians and bikers, and provide a safe, great experience both all users?

And after a number of very tough decisions, the Selection Committee narrowed the list to 10 semi-finalists. Those semi-finalists were reviewed by engineering consultants for construction feasibility and cost, and those that could be built on time and under budget became our finalists. You can view the full presentation of each of the four finalists by clicking the images below.
