(Margaret McDermott Bridge/IH-30/IH-35)
The Horseshoe Project is managed by the Texas Department of Transportation TxDOT) and it will upgrade bridges that cross the Trinity River at IH-30 and I-35E as well as update the route geometry for connecting roadways where they all converge near downtown Dallas' Central Business District. This project meets the NCTCOG 2035 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) http://www.nctcog.org/trans/mtp/
The Margaret McDermott Bridge is named after the philanthropist and wife of the founder of Texas Instruments. She was the first person to make a personal contribution that ensured Dallas' ability to secure Santiago Calatrava as the designer to meld architectural beauty with functionality for bridges over the Trinity River. The City of Dallas has worked with TxDOT, legislatures, the region to make this funding a priority.
For the IH-30 Bridge, the City of Dallas is working with TxDOT and Santiago Calatrava to design a signature addition that will result in the Margaret McDermott Bridge featuring pedestrian and bicycle access in and around downtown, the floodway and Oak Cliff.
