$10 Million Gift Provided Toward The Trinity Project in Dallas
The Trinity Trust Foundation and the city of Dallas announced a $10 million gift for The Trinity project, which features the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge - the first vehicular bridge designed by Santiago Calatrava in the United States. This world-class bridge is being constructed to seamlessly connect Singleton Boulevard in West Dallas across the Trinity River to Woodall Rodgers (Spur 366) in downtown Dallas. This bridge’s central arch will reach 400-ft high upon completion. Pieces of the white arch, which arrived in late July, and other steel bridge components could begin being hoisted into place by the end of the year.
Other elements include a 1,200-ft long span with mi of cable holding the bridge span in place. A $2.5-billion public works project, The Trinity project is one of the largest urban developments in the nation stretching 20 mi through Dallas and encompassing 10,000 acres. It is a flood protection project with recreational plans to include a meandering river, downtown lakes, an island, wetlands, hike and bike trails, riding paths and nature walks through the Great Trinity Forest.
