Driving across the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge is an interesting experience. This bridge parallels the Continental Avenue Pedestrian Bridge and the Texas Pacific Railway Trinity River Bridge while spanning across the Trinity River. As you follow the traffic across the bridge into downtown Dallas, you see the high-rise buildings of downtown, the Trinity River, the other bridges and the construction work on the Margaret McDermott Bridge. This fabulous bridge has a 400 foot center arch and connects Woodall Rodgers Freeway to Singleton Boulevard in West Dallas. The bridge artfully changes the downtown Dallas skyline.
The Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge was designed by internationally renowned architect Santiago Calatrava and is one of three bridges planned to be built over the Trinity River. Construction began in 2007 and completed in 2012 at a reported cost of $117 million. The bridge is named for Margaret Hunt Hill, an heiress and philanthropist.

That is a crazy-looking bridge, I love it! Reminds me a bit of Rotterdam. Great photo!
Thanks! They are building another one, too. I’ll have to look up Rotterdam. 🙂
