Bridge Lighting Mock-up Study ...

The Port of San Diego has requested an encroachment permit from the California Department of Transportation, which maintains the bridge, for a Bridge Lighting Mock-up study that may be installed as soon as the end of the month and be tested from Nov. 8-14.

The San Diego-Coronado Bridge Lighting Project, to light up the structure’s piers at night, was approved by the California Coastal Commission last October.

The Port of San Diego has requested an encroachment permit from the California Department of Transportation, which maintains the bridge, for a Bridge Lighting Mock-up study that may be installed as soon as the end of the month and be tested from Nov. 8-14.

The City is letting the community know that the permit will allow the Port to temporarily install LED lights on three bridge columns that will be visible as colored lights as they are actively tested each evening. The study will allow the port to observe, evaluate and collect data related to the output and performance of the lights. The community will have a chance to provide comments on the study, according to the Port, but details have not yet been finalized.

The City continues to work on improving the entrance to the City, at and around the Toll Plaza, which is a project Coronado fully supports.

It's too soon to do this. After the suicide barrier is in place because suicidal people are drawn to majestic, iconic, beautiful places to end thier lives and the bridge is already that. #LivesBeforeLights CoronadoBridge.Net
