Continental Avenue Bridge closes to traffic for makeover

Posted: Updated:

Dallas has permanently closed the Continental Avenue Bridge to traffic.

The closure is a first step in a makeover of the historic bridge, which carried traffic for 83 years to and from West Dallas.

The bridge is getting at $12 million transformation into a pedestrian and cyclist space. Planners say it will be a place for people to gather and enjoy the view of downtown and the Trinity River.

Features include landscaping, seating and fountains.

The project will take about a year to complete.
