Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge
During the weekend of March 2-4, 2012, a festive celebration occurred as 40,000 people converged at the Trinity River and enjoyed the opportunity of a lifetime to walk and run on the newest architectural and transportation icon for Dallas. There were parades, a street fair, music stages, fireworks, and a ceremonial ribbon run during this historic time for the City.
The Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge is designed by internationally renowned architect and engineer Santiago Calatrava. This stunning bridge with a 400 foot center arch will connect Woodall Rodgers Freeway seamlessly to Singleton Boulevard in West Dallas when it opens in the spring.
Besides providing the City with a signature structure and artfully changing the skyline, City, business and civic leaders believe the new transportation connection will spur economic development in West Dallas and help to bring people down to the river while also fostering unity within the north and south divide in the City.
