Continental Bridge in Dallas Now Pedestrian-Only

Continental Bridge Dallas

The Continental Bridge that connects Downtown Dallas to West Dallas opened last weekend as a pedestrian and bicycle bridge. It’s pretty awesome. There are also formal trails being developed below. The long-term goal has been to turn this flood plain into a large urban park. The bridge provides excellent views of the Dallas skyline and the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge (which should have been built with sidewalks).
