Oklahoma City is a city on the grow. From a gleaming new addition to our skyline, to a glowing new pedestrian bridge spanning a brand-new highway, the renaissance of OKC continues. And there’s so much more on the horizon.
Oklahoma City’s central location leads to access to some of the nation’s major interstates. One important note to make before you venture out is the recent relocation of Interstate 40. This thoroughfare, which runs from Los Angeles to Raleigh, N.C., used to hug the southern edge of the downtown business district in OKC. But in 2012, a new (and much improved) stretch of this interstate was opened a mile further south, on the north side of the Oklahoma River. Spanning this new stretch of interstate is the Skydance pedestrian bridge. This functional piece of public art will soon connect all the activity on the Oklahoma River with a brand-new 70-acre downtown park.
