Mock up of what the new Bay Bridge anniversary project could look like:
The two-year project “Bay Lights,” as envisioned by the artist, will feature 25,000 white lights creating sequences on the Bay Bridge’s suspension cables.
I’m really excited for this. I’ve always loved the Bay Bridge. I drive over it most days to get to Pandora’s offices in Oakland.
It was opened one year before the Golden Gate Bridge (1936 vs. 1937) so it has always lived in the Golden Gate’s shadow, hence its nickname “the Jealous Older Brother.” But it is beautiful in its own right. This project will make it even more so.
