Be among the 1st to cross the new Trinity River bridge in Fort Worth - on foot or bike

PhyllistilleybridgededicationPedestrians and cyclists now have a new, beautiful way to get over the Trinity River, connecting Trinity Park and Trails to downtown Fort Worth. The new Phyllis J. Tilley Memorial Bridge formally opens Saturday. The organization Streams and Valleys will host a ribbon-cutting at 10 a.m. at the bridge, which is near Forest Park Boulevard and the West Lancaster Avenue automobile bridge.

A picnic with live music, air boat rides and other entertainment will follow the event. For ticket information, call 817-916-0006.

The arch-supporter, stress-ribbon bridge is 364 feet long. It was designed by Freese and Nichols Inc. and Boston architect Miguel Rosales, according to a city newsletter.

The project totaled about $3 million, including federal grants administered by the Texas Department of Transportation, Fort Worth and $200,000 in private donations from Streams and Valleys.
