Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Sam's all booked up Tuesday morning -- got himself a Trinity River Corridor Project Committee meeting to attend. But speaking of, I did want to direct your attention to one agenda item of note: a presentation on the design for the Continental Bridge, which, as we mentioned last month, is being turned into a pedestrian bridge courtesy an anonymous $10-million donation. I'm a bit underwhelmed, but only because a Friend of Unfair Park was kind enough to send us sneak peeks at earlier plans for the bridge, which suggest both streetcars and Starfleet Academy. You wanna see 'em? Then beam over to the jump.

And, on related note, anyone know why the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge Construction cam's still stuck on a photo from September 30? Oh. Right.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
