Inspired by Oklahoma’s state bird, the scissor-tailed flycatcher, Skydance Bridge soars over Interstate 40. The bridge is a 380-foot-long pedestrian bridge with a 197-foot-tall sculpture. The bridge is made of 412 tons of steel and is illuminated nightly by LED lights. These colored lights are changed remotely for special events and holidays. The bridge is located on I-40 near Robinson Ave. S. in Oklahoma City, OK 73109.
Parking is available on Hudson Ave. just northwest of the bridge. Okies for Monarchs will be located in the South Garden Trellis in Scissortail Park next to Union Station which is just north of the bridge.
