Colorful new lights coming to the Skyway Bridge

Skyway LED Lights

TAMPA, Fla. (WWSB) - Tampa Bay stands to get a little brighter in about a month.

The state is installing LED light fixtures on the Sunshine Skyway Bridge.

The project costs about 15 million dollars. This will come from the tolls collected from drivers crossing the bridge.

The primary purpose of the project is for aesthetic lighting, but the new lights will also add safety and security.
