    The Scenario

    A 1.2 kilometer (3/4 mile) long bridge lights up the city skyline with Color Kinetics Blast, FlexElite, and Graze Powercore luminaires. Seen by thousands every day the previously dark and foreboding structure is now a symbol of civic pride and community engagement with colorful light shows that play nightly, encouraging public engagement, boosting tourism, and enhancing the local economy.
