The last link in the second Calatrava bridge arch on I-30 over the Trinity River has been dropped in.

The Margaret McDermott Bridge was designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava-- as was the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, completed in 2012.

Workers are beginning to set up the steel arches for the Margaret McDermott Bridge in Dallas.

The arches will be the distinguishing feature on the bridge. Like the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, the Margaret McDermott Bridge was designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. The arches were constructed in Tampa, Florida, and shipped in pieces to Dallas in August. Once completed, the arches will rise 286 feet over the roadway.

Two giant arches that will eventually tower over the Trinity River are being built in Florida.

The arches are part of the new Margaret McDermott Bridge.

Tampa Steel Erecting Co. is in charge of the $40 million project. Vice President Jeffrey Ames tells The Tampa Tribune that all 80 of the company's current employees are working on the project.
