Oklahoma City Skydance Pedestrian Bridge





The Skydance Pedestrian Bride over I-40 just south of DT OKC cost $6.5 million to construct.  It is one of those structures shaped to resemble the state bird--the scissortail flycatcher.  The bridge highlighted by different color and color combinations, illuminates the skyline as drivers observe it from the 10 lane I-40 crosstown expressway.

Will Rogers World Airport Expansion




Will Rogers World Airport Expansion:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9JC6issd54o

A $110 million multi-phase expansion and renovation project, designed by Atkins Benham Inc. and Gensler and built by Oscar J. Boldt Construction Company,[10] began in 2001.

In 2014, the Airport Trust selected Option 2a, which includes only the central terminal improvements. The $3.6M project will create a new central checkpoint in the center of the check-in hall. Two new greeter lobbies will be created where existing check points exist. The expansion will slightly reduce the space utilized by Sonic in the food court. The restrooms in the
area will also be relocated to the nearby Osage room. The Southwest ticket counters will be relocated further east.

In 2015 the airport trust agreed to proceed with the full construction of the East Concourse due to increased congestion in the existing West and Central concourses and passenger demand.

The new East expansion will also include an innovative view system composed of an elevated platform that will allow visitors to walk above the newly expanded East section and view down onto the concourse and the airside. Visitors would enter the elevated walkway in the terminal lobby non-secured side and there will also be a lounge.   This would give the terminal a final configuration with three concourses, East, West, and Central and would provide the airport with 30+ gates.  

Will Rogers World Airport terminal expansion gets final go-ahead:  https://newsok.com/article/5605696/airport-authority-gives-final-approval-to-plans-for-will-rogers-terminal-expansion.

Father Rother Shine & 2,000-seat Roman Catholic Basilica will be built in South Oklahoma City




The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Oklahoma City has chosen The Boldt Co. to serve as construction manager for the building of the Blessed Stanley Rother Shrine in Oklahoma City.

The shrine will be built on a former golf course at SE 89 between Shields Boulevard and Interstate 35. It will be the final resting place for Rother, an Okarche native who was killed in 1981 in Guatemala while serving the poor as a missionary priest. In 2016, Pope Francis declared Rother the first martyr for the Catholic Church in the United States.
In September 2017, during a Beatification Mass in downtown Oklahoma City, he became the first martyr and the first U.S.-born priest to be beatified — the last step before sainthood.

Groundbreaking on the 56-acre shrine complex is expected in early 2020 with completion by summer 2022.--Oklahoman, August 11, 2018


Blessed Father Stanley Rother

The shrine will include a 2,000-seat church, a 200-seat chapel, a museum and a pilgrim center, which will tell the story of Rother's life and martyrdom.
An event center and education building will be added in front of the main church.




The Boldt Co. will join design architects Franck and Lohsen, of Washington, D.C., and project architects ADG, of Oklahoma City.
The shrine will include a 2,000-seat church, a 200-seat chapel, a museum and a pilgrim center, which will tell the story of Rother’s life and martyrdom.

“The committee found The Boldt Company leadership to be highly capable and good communicators with a deep understanding of the mission and purpose of the shrine,” Molly Bernard, chairman of the shrine selection committee, said in a news release...
