The Phyllis Tilley Memorial Pedestrian Bridge crosses over the Trinity River connecting Trinity Park to a new trail that terminates in downtown Fort Worth. The bridge has a graceful profile that enhances the serene and beautiful landscape. A steel arch with a span of 163’ (49.5m) supports steel stress ribbon segments and precast concrete planks over the river complementing the adjacent historic Lancaster vehicular bridge. This 368’ (112m) long steel stressed ribbon/arch combination bridge is the first of its kind in North America. This unconventional structural combination was selected as a result of the site conditions, visual objectives, and the desire of the City of Fort Worth to build a special and memorable structure along the river.
