Sentinel Lights to be Fully Illuminated This Week

SEPTEMBER 1, 2016 | WEBSITE SUBMITTED

As a quick update, the sentinels, which mark the beginning and end of the world’s longest floating bridge, sentinel-diaare being illuminated Thursday night, Sept 1. Although a portion of the sentinels are already lit (see green circle, right) the fixtures that shine up onto the sentinels from the pontoons (see blue circle) will complete the lighting elements.

Crews will test the new fixtures for about one week. During this period, you may see a rainbow of colors as the lights cycle though different colors. After the testing is complete, the lights will default to teal when active from dusk to dawn.
