Nashville’s Korean Veterans Boulevard bridge, which connects downtown to east Nashville, received a new LED lighting controls system, courtesy of Exergy Controls.
The city switched out the old incandescent lights and replacing them with more efficient LED lights. The lights can be programmed to change colors on the bridge’s arch, beams and cables. In respect for the victims of the recent terrorist attacks in Paris, the bridge reflected the colors of the French flag (pictured).
A total of 256 color combinations are possible, allowing the city to change the LED colors for special events and holidays.
“You can actually program when the lights come on, when they dim,” explained Mark Macy, director of engineering for Metro Public Works.
