Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge
The Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge is designed by internationally renowned architect and engineer Santiago Calatrava. This stunning bridge with a 400 foot center arch connects Woodall Rodgers Freeway seamlessly to Singleton Boulevard in West Dallas.
Besides providing the City with a signature structure and artfully changing the skyline, City, business and civic leaders believed the new transportation connection would spur economic development in West Dallas and help to bring people down to the river, while also fostering unity across the north and south divide in the City.
With the City’s investment in Singleton Boulevard Improvements, the building of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge and roadway accesses along with the Continental Avenue Bridge West Dallas Gateway, the neighborhoods and business districts in West Dallas are experiencing unprecedented growth and revitalization.
The exciting restaurant incubator community, Trinity Groves, is popular with people throughout Dallas for the food, music and attractive renovated buildings and community-style outdoor patios. This area is flourishing with new employment opportunities while generating interest in further development within the community. Apartment complexes, new homes, cottage businesses, and shopping options such as Sylvan 30 all point to important economic development and growth for the West Dallas area.
The Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge first opened in March 2012 with a celebration of parades, a street fair, live music, fireworks and a ceremonial ribbon run as 40,000 people joined the weekend long festivities.
