ICYMI: Colorful Preview of New Bridge’s Lighting
“TZC will begin preliminary testing of the westbound Rockland approach’s aesthetic lighting in the coming weeks. The preliminary testing will occur during daytime hours.”
The above notice is from the February 16 press release. Thank you to Steve, who contacted me not long ago to say he noticed the colorful lighting tests.
The LED lighting — 2,700 color lights that can be programmed remotely for variable shades and 500 white lights — is from Philips Lighting, the same company that brightens Madison Square Garden.
Philips said the new system, the first of its kind in the industry, will combine roadway and architectural lighting and is estimated to be 75 percent more energy-efficient than traditional lighting.

Did you miss seeing them, too? I’d like to know what you think.
