The Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge is a bridge in Dallas, Texas that spans the Trinity River. The bridge was constructed as part of the Trinity River Project. Designed by Santiago Calatrava, it is one of three such bridges planned to be built over the Trinity; the second, the Margaret McDermott Bridge, is currently under construction. The span parallels the Ronald Kirk Avenue Bridge, a walking bridge.The bridge is named for Margaret Hunt Hill, an heiress and philanthropist.HistoryThe bridge, which opened in March 2012, is first of a series of bridges that the office of Santiago Calatrava designed to span the Trinity River in downtown Dallas. The bridge connects Spur 366 (Woodall Rodgers Freeway) in downtown to Singleton Boulevard in West Dallas. Construction on the bridge began in December 2005.The bridge cost $117 million to build. A Dallas Morning News analysis put the project's total cost at $182 million.On June 26, 2010, the signature 40-story center-support arch was topped with a central curved span, providing an additional feature to the Dallas skyline, which can now be seen from many miles away in several directions.
