NOT SIGNED ON YET

DALLAS, LIKE MANY CITIES ACROSS AMERICA HAVE AGING INFRA-STRUCTURE. CITIES ALL ACROSS AMERICA GREW RAPIDLY IN THE EARLY TWENTIETH CENTURY. FOLLOWING WORLD WAR TWO HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF RETURNING GI'S GOT MARRIED,STARTED FAMILIES AND BOUGHT CARS. ALL THESE NEW CARS NEEDED ROADS TO DRIVE ON AND MANY ,IF NOT MOST, OF OUR BRIDGES ARE FROM THIS ERA. THESE FIFTY TO EIGHTY YEAR OLD STUCTURES NEED TO BE REPLACED.

DALLAS, BEING NATURALLY SPLIT BY THE TRINITY RIVER, HAS MANY SUCH BRIDGES . AS ONE WHO WORKS IN OAK CLIFF, I KNOW BECAUSE I FREQUENTLY PASS OVER THESE STRUCTURES.

MY CONCERN IS NOT IF THESE BRIDGES SHOULD BE BUILT BUT HOW THEY ARE BUILT. THE GROUP LEAD BY MAYOR MILLER BELIEVE THAT DALLAS SHOULD BUILD WHAT THEY CALL"SIGNATURE BRIDGES". THEY CONTEND IF WE CONSTRUCT BRIDGES WITH GREAT EMPHASIS ON DESIGN AND AESTHETICS PEOPLE WILL COME TO DALLAS JUST TO SEE THEM.THEY WOULD ARGUE THE REVENUE GENERATED BY VISITORS AND PEOPLE THAT DSESIDE TO RELOCATE TO DALLAS AFTER THEY WERE AWESTRUCK BY THE BRIDGES JUSTIFY THE PROJECT. SUPPORTERS BELIEVE THESE BRIDGES WILL BE WHAT PEOPLE THINK OF WHEN THEY THINK OF DALLAS ,THUS THE TERM SIGNATURE BRIDGES.

LIKE MOST LARGE MUNICIPAL PROJECTS , BOND ELECTIONS WERE PASSED SEVERAL YEARS AGO TO HELP FINANCE THESE PROJECTS. THESE FUNDS ALONG WITH STATE AND FEDERAL MONEY HAS BEEN SET ASIDE FOR CONSTRUCTION..

WRBridge01

THE PROBLEM IS MONEY HAS BEEN EARMARKED FOR BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION NOT WORKS OF ART .DALLAS SHOULD BUILD AS MANY UPDATED FUNCTIONAL BRIDGES AS POSSIBLE WITH THESE FUNDS .

I MIGHT SIGN ON TO THIS PROJECT OF BEAUTIFUL SIGNATURE BRIDGES GOING ACROSS THE TRINITY INTO OAK CLIFF AFTER WE FIRST ADDRESS OUR AGING STREETS, SCHOOLS, SEWER LINES, WATER LINES, GAS LINES, DETIORATING PARKS, AGING POLICE CARS, LIMITED FIRE EQUIPMENT, CRIME, CORRUPTION, HOMLESSNESS, HOUSING......I COULD GO ON.

OTHER THAN THAT.............SIGN ME UP!!!!!!!!!

A real enlightening blog. Don't stop now. I'm sure you'd be interested in How to buy & sell everything, like kit car on interest free credit; pay whenever you want.

i think those bridges are ugly. i've never been into weird bridge architecture. i like the old fashioned ones that were built for practicality, not for looking cool.

it's good to see that escorts are concerned about bridge bonds. my hometown of BAYTOWN, TX built a suspension bridge to replace a perfectly working tunnel in hopes of the same sort of thing.... it didnt work!

That's not very beautiful, I definitely wouldn't move to dallas for that. Possibly move AWAY though.
