New Trinity Trail Bike, Pedestrian Bridge near Lancaster

The Phyllis Tilley Memorial Bridge is under construction south of the Lancaster Avenue bridge. The pedestrian and bike bridge will offer a new connection between the Trinity Trails and downtown Fort Worth.

The bridge will span 384 feet and is, according to the bridge's architects, the first stress ribbon-style bridge of its kind in the US. It is a $3 million project and should be completed by the end of November.

More architectural renderings are available on the project's architects' site: Freese and Nichols. Streams and Valleys, which contributed $250,000, to the cost of the bridge also has more information on their site.

NBC Channel 5 had a report on the bridge yesterday that you can view below. The text of their story is available on their site.
