How many light are installed?

  • There are 76 low-wattage (55 watt) LED lights illuminating the stay cables. 
  • An additional 16 LED fixtures (4 each pylon) illuminate the outside faces of the pylons.
  • A total of 92 lights


Why are they blue?

  • A blue lens was added to soften the lighting, reduce glare, and minimize any impacts to migratory birds that can become disoriented in the more traditional bright white lights.
  • The lighting color also helps to maintain the blue stay cable bridge theme.
