Time lapse: Dallas’ Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge arch now completely arch-like
Oh, sure, they completed the arch -- but those dang palettes are still sitting there next to the road.
About a month ago I got word that the steel arch sections of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge were beginning to go up, so I began capturing images from the Trinity River Corridor's webcam with the thought of putting them together in a rough time-lapse sequence.
The result is what you see here.
Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge arch completion time lapse
The final section of the arch was lifted into place Saturday morning, which kind of made this morning's official champagne toasting event something of a belated affair. (One wonders why they decided to complete the arch on Saturday instead of doing it real-time this morning as the corks were popped.)
At any rate, the Santiago Calatrava-designed span is scheduled for completion in late 2011 -- by which time the construction webcam will be no longer needed.
