Seen these weird lights on the Coronado bridge?

Testing of signature project Nov. 8-14

Lights on three of the tallest bridge columns

As the Port of San Diego has moved forward with its San Diego-Coronado Bay Bridge Lighting Project, the vision for lighting up the bridge is coming more into focus.

For one week which started Sunday, November 8 to Saturday, November 14 – a portion of the bridge was temporarily illuminated as the Port conducts the first overwater lighting field test. This testing is the next step in studying the vision to create a monumental signature artwork for the region.

Following authorization of a Coastal Development Permit from the California Coastal Commission, testing of the LED infrastructure, placement, and color displays is being conducted on three of the tallest bridge columns (the vertical support structures beneath the bridge) near the center of the bridge span.

Each night during the week of testing, lighting in different colors, Tuesday in these pictures were purple combinations, sequencing, and arrangements will be intermittently visible to San Diegans and visitors to San Diego Bay as lights are being configured and tested in real-time.

Occasionally there will be periods of darkness as other aspects of the installation are tested.

The week of technical testing is intended to evaluate the lighting design that has been developed to-date, its technical functionality, and its ability to display the broad range of artistic color lighting as envisioned.

During the testing, 170 computer-programable color LED luminaires and controllers have been temporarily installed, and the project team and design consultants have taken measurements, collected data, and identified adjustments that may be necessary as the project’s design development continues.

This Economy that the country/state/city being in is the (SIC) correctly chosen time to do it. Was this the mayor's choice or the intelligence of the governor to tell the mayor to do it?

ALL OF THIS is at the Taxpayer's CO$T. Why not consider a tiny portion of this cost, from the hotel/motel owners --- when adjusting rates, to the tourists?~ As the hotel/motel owners are billed for property tax.

The closest dough of such I accept of such, as a citizen, be for the porting of a pizza, (no endorsement to this) considering there be enough tomato sauce as the sea. As the pepperoni being the harbored boating.
