The Skyway Bridge is getting a makeover, it’s part of the Bridge Lightning Project and has an aim on both safety and aesthetics. The Florida Department of Transportation is in the process of adding 1,800 LED lights along the length of the bridge.
We want them to be proud of the bridge. We maintain this bridge, it's going to be around for another 50-75 years. Any new bridge that is built, lighting is already included and this bridge never had lighting, so this is just going to be really a signature bridge for the state of Florida. It’s going to be beautiful. -Kim Carson, Spokesman for the FDOT
