I love bridges

in Adventure

I have developed a bit of a fascination with the bridges in Dallas. I never really noticed bridges in Cape Town but here they are SO beautifully designed that I can’t help but gawk in awe every time we drive past or underneath one.

My favourite is the High Five Interchange on Highway 75.  It’s 5 awesome roadways built over each other. The $261 million project was initiated in 2002 and completed in December 2005. Just look at this – and know these photos don’t even begin to do it justice. It is SO impressive!

Please note all the “lone star” s on the pillars and as you enter and exit the bridge it also has designs carved into the side:

Some other bridges that have also caught my eye are the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge – the white one below, and also the Arapaho Bridge which is blue and very striking!
