See also

Starting Friday, and lasting throughout the entire weekend, friends, family and fans will gather to celebrate the grand opening of Dallas' newest landmark, the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge.

The Santiago Calatrava-designed bridge will officially be opening up for through traffic, as the major connection between Woodall Rodgers Freeway in downtown and Singleton Boulevard in West Dallas. The bridge crosses the Trinity River and took more than 4 years of construction to complete. According to the website, the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge will serve as a defining landmark of the larger Trinity River corridor's existing natural beauty and increasing accessibility.

Festivities throughout the weekend will include a Lyle Lovett concert, a 5K run and bike ride, a street fair and festival with local artists and bands, celebrity chefs and “the best new view in town.”
