City leaders approve plan to repair Skydance Bridge
OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma City leaders are moving forward with plans to repair the Skydance Bridge over I-40.
This week, city council members gave the green light for officials to begin advertising for bids to make repairs to the unique structure.
The bridge is only about 6-years-old, but the wood deck stretching across I-40 has reached its life span. In the past, the wood has warped, forcing emergency repairs.
Now, the city is looking to replace it with a fiberglass deck.
Construction is expected to start this summer and finish up in the fall.
The work could cost upwards of $840,000.
