I-244 Bridge Light Ornaments

Tulsa, Oklahoma

Just south of downtown Tulsa, the I-244 bridge provides pedestrian and vehicular access over the Arkansas River. To add visual interest to the bridge’s lighting, Shawnee Steel & Welding fabricated aesthetic covers for the architectural ornaments that house the light poles. The design required over three million half-inch holes to be punched and specialty paint coverage applied. Shawnee Steel worked hand in hand with artists, architects, and the City of Tulsa Construction Authority to ensure the success of this highly detailed project.
