JAMES JOYCE BRIDGE [BLACKHALL PLACE]-125376

James Joyce Bridge bridge spanning the River Liffey in Dublin, Ireland, joining the south quays to Blackhall Place on the north side.

 

Designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, it is a single-span structural steel design, 40 m (131 ft) long, with the deck supported from two outward angled arches.

 

The bridge was built by Irishenco Construction, using pre-fabricated steel sections from Harland and Wolff of Belfast.

 

The bridge is named for the famous Dublin author James Joyce, and was opened on 16 June 2003 (Bloomsday). Joyce's short story "The Dead" is set in Number 15 Usher's Island, the house facing the bridge on the south side.
