The Walnut Avenue Bridge in Oklahoma City, built in 1935, is a viaduct connecting
the historic Deep Deuce and Bricktown areas. The City Engineer’s office seeks its
demolition to make way for an at-grade entrance into Bricktown. This summer, the city council will finally hold a hearing on whether to designate the structure a local
landmark. Preservation Oklahoma is working with local preservationists and the local NAACP to convince the city to retain the bridge as part of an overall plan for
development sensitive to the historic resources of the Deep Deuce area.
