Save the Date - Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge Opening Weekend

Planning for the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge Opening Celebration continues, and the dates are now set for the weekend of March 2, 2012. Construction crews are stringing 58 elegant cables on this signature bridge designed by internationally known architect, engineer and artist Santiago Calatrava. The bridge will be Calatrava's first vehicular bridge to be built in the U.S. to connect Singleton Blvd. in West Dallas across the Trinity River to Woodall Rodgers in downtown Dallas.

Community leader Lynn McBee and The Trinity Trust and Trinity Commons Foundation are leading the planning for this momentous occasion.

The honorary event chairs for the grand opening weekend include the three Dallas mayors who have worked and continue to work on The Trinity project: The Honorable Ron Kirk, The Honorable Laura Miller, and The Honorable Tom Leppert, as well as the soon-to-be-elected new Dallas Mayor.
