Caltrava’s Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge to be topped off tomorrow

25Jun10

You might have seen that huge looming white arch in the South Dallas area, you might have not. This is actually the Margaret Hunt Hill bridge designed by world-famous Santiago Caltrava. This bridge links the West Dallas to North Oak Cliff. The estimated cost of the bridge was $115 Million, and I am not sure as to what the final cost is going to be. Mayor Leppert and Kay Bailey Hutchinson will be speaking about the completion of the structure. They were originally intended to be speaking at an open-to-the-public viewing of the topping of the bridge but since they are ahead of schedule, you will only get to see them speak about how great it is to have the structure in Dallas. Either way I am extremely excited about this bridge. If you couldn’t already tell, Dallas is undergoing a huge makeover and I am hypothesizing that in less than 10 years it’s going to become a very popular city (more so than it is now at least), and not to mention the Oak Cliff area is making a comeback!View some renditions of the bridge below!
