This week we saw hints of what the completed IWay bridge lighting will look like. This doesn’t appear to be the complete picture, since, in this shot, the tower structures are not lit, and if you look carefully, you’ll notice that only the northern half of the bridge has its decorative lighting turned on.
I think the lighting looks great, but WOW is it bright! You could see the beams of light in the sky above the bridge for some distance. I can only imagine the wash of light that will be cast when both sides are lit.
It certainly will be quite a beacon. When there is a festivity and they setup search lights to aim at the sky, it does create a sense of “OOh, whats going on over there?”. When this thing goes full intensity, I think it may create that same sense of wonder and draw.
