Admiring Wichita Falls Holliday Creek Vision's Southwest Boulevard Signature Bridge

The view you see above I see via walking the Circle Trail a short distance south of my abode. At this location the Circle Trail passes under the Southwest Boulevard Bridge over Holliday Creek. 

This is an iconic signature bridge (according to Fort Worth, Texas bridge standards). Note the stunning round vertical piers upon which the bridge was built.

This bridge was part of the Wichita Falls Holliday Creek Vision. A legitimate flood control project, unlike the illegitimate flood control project projected in another Texas town.

Fort Worth.

The Holliday Creek Vision's Southwest Boulevard Bridge was built over actual water.

While Fort Worth has been lamely trying for years to build three simple little bridges over dry land to connect the Fort Worth mainland to an imaginary island.

Those trying to build these Fort Worth bridges tell the locals, who apparently are extremely gullible, that these new Fort Worth bridges will be iconic signature bridges, which people, world-wide, will recognize as being a Fort Worth engineering marvel, you know, like the Golden Gate Bridge does for San Francisco, or the Brooklyn Bridge does for New York City.

Wichita Falls does not brag about its signature Holliday Creek Bridge. I have never even heard mention made of this bridge in any local forum.

The city does provide that comfortable swinging bench you see in the photo above, so that one can sit and admire this engineering marvel...
