The Bay Lights Project Takes a Test-Drive

New, 2 comments

We first told you about the The Bay Lights art installation on the Bay Bridge's west span back in April when it was being discussed by the Board of Supervisors. Designed by artist Leo Villareal to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the Bay Bridge (that has already passed but hey), the installation includes 25,000 white energy-efficient LED lights installed on the vertical suspender cables of the north facing side of the upper deck on the bridge's western span. The installation will go live in March and be on display for bridge viewers (but it won't be visible to drivers on the bridge) for two years. The installation has started and the video above gives a sneak peek of a test-drive The Bay Lights took this past week. 1,000 lights are already installed, with 24,000 to go.
