From a steel plant in Tampa, Florida, a very, very early look at Dallas’ second Calatrava bridge

As our Tom Benning noted in May: “Early work has begun on the so-called Horseshoe project, a four-year, $800 million effort to fix parts of Interstates 30 and 35E in downtown Dallas.” That includes the second Santiago Calatrava-designed bridge, the $114.9-million hikable-bikable span over I-30 to be named for Dallas philanthropist Margaret McDermott.

According to the city of Dallas, the bridge — a scaled-down version of the original four-arch vision — is presently being fabricated in Tampa, Florida, at the Tampa Steel Erecting Company. What you’ll find below is the center segment of one of the arches.

I'm absolutely amazed (and completely happy) that interstate highway bridges will include accommodations for pedestrians and/or cyclists!

But once the Lakes are done under the bridge, it would be even better. I can't wait until they start putting the arches up next year.

To me the lakes are the most important piece of the project...They're whats gonna pull everything together. I do have to say that the one project that everyone is sleeping on is the Continental Bridge Park which is under construction. I think it along with the lakes will be the main two projects that will bring PEOPLE to the river on a regular white rock-esq basis....I can't WAIT!

Agreed, I'm just waiting for them to build it. What's the hold up?

with all of the delays and rebuild of parts of the levees, they are not funded anymore. Perhaps this happens later as some of the larger riverside projects actually get underway.

Ah, that sucks! We should ask a Dallas billionaire to fund the project. Maybe we could name one of the lakes after them, like Klyde Warren Park.
