Celebrate the opening ceremonies of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge with the purchase of our commemorative memorabilia.
Watch the historic topping-off of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge in Dallas, Texas. Learn how architect Santiago Calatrava’s cable-stayed bridge works. Join the 40,000 people who celebrated the March 2012 opening weekend of Dallas’ newest landmark!
More than a decade in the making, the half-hour special is the work of the award-winning documentary team of Judy Kelly, Producer/Director/Writer, and Ginny Martin, Photographer/Editor. Beginning in 2001 with the public/private partnership to finance the signature bridge and ending in 2012 with a challenge to the public to support efforts to reclaim the Trinity River, the program introduces the bridge builders, led by famed Spanish artist, architect and engineer Santiago Calatrava.
Featured in the video are the architects, engineers, truck drivers, ironworkers, welders, crane operators, cable installation crews, electricians, and highway constructors as well as the political leaders and the community representatives who have built Calatrava’s first vehicular bridge in America.
Watch Dallas area middle school students build a model of the cable-stayed bridge after visiting the construction site in the flood plain between Woodall-Rodgers on the downtown side of the city and West Dallas.
The March 2012 Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge Celebration was co-hosted by the City of Dallas, The Trinity Trust and the Trinity Commons Foundation. The concluding scenes of a jubilant community gathering on the bridge for parades, ceremonies, levee runs, and a street fair present the kind of united force which will be needed to advance the vision for The Trinity project. The Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge stands as a hallmark of that future. 30 min. View the trailer. Click image to view larger.DVD ORDER
