Skywalks prevent us from encountering hostile Oklahoma weather, and sometimes that is a wonderful thing.
Skywalks are also generally safe places for walking, in that there are no uneven or unpredictable walking surfaces. Almost anyone can make his/her way safely from one building to another, regardless of physical limitations.
What’s more, unlike sidewalks, no one seems to mind paying for skywalks.
The big white box on the left side approximately midway down this hallway, is a point of connection to a skywalk-in-progress.
