11th Street Bridge

BY Tulsa Preservation Commission

Built from 1916 to 1917, the 11th Street Bridge is a good example of a multi-span concrete arch bridge with verticals. It is a continuous span constructed of reinforced concrete, and features monolithic roadway decking and guardrails. It was altered in 1929 and has ornate guardrails that utilize Art Deco motifs, especially the Zigzag Art Deco and PWA classical-oriented Art Deco. Its roadbed is 34 feet wide and it was labor intensive to build, reflecting a technology and aesthetic approach to bridge construction no longer in use.

The 11th Street Arkansas River Bridge was listed in the National Register of Historic Places on December 13, 1996.
