Bridge at Night is Big and Bright

The blue glow emanating from Trinity Park last Friday night will soon become a feature of the Fort Worth landscape. Freese and Nichols tested the lighting of the Phyllis J. Tilley Memorial Pedestrian Bridge, and it passed with flying —walking? — colors.

The arch-supported stress ribbon bridge, the first of its kind in the United States, spans the Clear Fork of the Trinity River and connects Fort Worth's downtown and Cultural District. It is named for Phyllis J. Tilley, who helped found river beautification initiatives such as Mayfest and Streams and Valleys.

A dedication and picnic celebration will take place Aug. 25. For more information about the event, please visit the Streams and Valleys website here.
