CONNECTING THE SOUTH QUAYS TO BLACKHALL PLACE - JAMES JOYCE BRIDGE
James Joyce Bridge is a road bridge spanning the River Liffey in Dublin 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. The deck is supported from two outward angled arches, the silhouette of which is sometimes compared to the shape of an open book.
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. The house appears to be in poor condition at present. I will publish a photograph of the house later today.
