A dramatic $798 million infrastructure project to improve traffic flow in the heart of Dallas’ downtown moves towards completion 

On 22 August, Santiago Calatrava’s Margaret McDermott Bridge in Dallas, Texas was topped off. This new structure became a striking addition to the Texas city’s skyline, with an arch soaring 275 feet over the highway. When completed, the bridge will improve accessibility for the more than 460,000 vehicles that travel on the I-30 each weekday. Santiago Calatrava also designed the Margaret Hunt Bridge in Dallas, which was built to improve accessibility and has added greatly to the skyline. Pedestrians and bicyclists will now have access in and out of Dallas with two pedestrian lanes.

The bridge is a main component of the Horseshoe Project, which began in April 2013 and is expected to be completed by summer 2017. When the project is complete, drivers will have a safer, larger roadway with more mobility through the city’s centre. Improvements include widening the I-30 and I-35E to have 23 lanes.

The $113 million project will also have a second, identical arch on the north side of I-30 when finished.
