  • Nice shot Matt… Was that last night? The bridge was relit (although less brilliantly than before) when I crossed last evening.

  • Thanks Bret! Yes, that was last night around 5:30. I noticed from 95N that the lights were illuminating the sky, and I just had to try and capture it.

    They’ve only been using a subset of lights thus far. Last night it appeared to be the lights on the South side of the bridge (or maybe just the middle, but clearly not the North).

  • Boy, do they have the new bridge set on “stun”, or what? I wonder what the final product will look like.

    Thanks for giving me another cameo!

  • Last night it was just the middle arch lit and it cast a really neat dual beam into the air.

    I wonder if it will be on tonight and what it will look like with the snow if it is.
