The Bay Lights are returning to the Bay Bridge! Construction workers have recently been scaling the bridge’s 300 cables at night installing over 25,000 LED lights that will be turned on January 30, just in time for Super Bowl 50. The lights went off last year on March 5th so workers could do some necessary maintenance on the cables.
The Bay Lights were originally conceived as a two-year installation of ever-changing display of computer-generated patterns on the western Bay Bridge span created by artist Leo Villareal. The project was funded by the organization Illuminate the Arts. For more info on the Bay Lights, click here.
