Like it? Bay News 9 reports the testing phase has begun of “the Bridge Lighting Project.” It looks nice, but there’s also another perk: safety. They say the 1800 LED lights will change colors (there are 8 themes) and it’ll light up the darker spots along the bridge making it hopefully safer for drivers. They say it’s a $15 million for the project is coming from tolls.
The Florida Department of Transportation is in the process of adding more than 1,800 LED light fixtures. The project is about both aesthetics and safety. @Laurie_Davison has more details. https://t.co/gJ7u8jd5Dq— Spectrum Bay News 9 (@BN9) July 30, 2019
