There has been much anticipation regarding the opening of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge to vehicular traffic. It was hoped that the bridge could open at the conclusion of the public celebrations on March 4, 2012. However, due to weather conditions, mainly much needed rain, portions of the construction will take a few more weeks than anticipated.How oh how will I ever get to Oak Cliff ... oh, right. Same way I always have.
Although TxDOT could have opened portions of the bridge (access from Woodall Rodgers to North Beckley Avenue) on March 5, 2012, the City's public safety officials have advised that due to lack of some signals and ramps not being completed at this time, there is the potential for motorists to be confused, which could lead to accidents and injury.
Therefore, the City will open the bridge when all components are fully functioning in a safe manner. The opening date is anticipated to be March 29, 2012.
