Veteran's Bridge Explores Idea of LED Lighting As Part of Bridge Plaza Project

Posted: Updated:

Veteran's Bridge downtown Mankato could soon have an added touch of light.

The proposed project is part of the Bridge Plaza Project at the intersection of Mulberry Street and Riverfront Drive.

It would consist of lighting designed to light up all of Veteran's Bridge.

The LED lighting would have the ability to change colors with various events, such as Vikings Training Camp and MSU Mankato's Homecoming.

President of Brennan Construction Mike Brennan said, "Right now it's a visionary discussion point that a lot of people like the idea of. So the next step would be to clarify the design and the pricing and probably most importantly the funding process. What we've talked about and what a lot of people like the idea of is some type of a public/private partnership."

The bridge project is still in its designing phase and would cost an estimated $400,000.
