Thanks to all of the BRO readers who sent us emails with colorful Skyway sightings this week.
If you've been prowling around the Inner Harbor, you too may have seen the test lighting that is being conducted by the Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation (ECHDC). According to Kaitlin McGee Chmura, Assistant Project Manager ECHDC, the test pilot project is aimed at finding the most aesthetically pleasing display with the most impact when lighting up the columns. The final tweaking of the LEDs will be finished next week, when the color changing lights will go into full show. The ECHDC contracted with Ferguson Electric and LDI Lighting.
The next phase will be to extend the LED lighting further down the site, while optimizing the full impact and testing out color combinations, delayed rotations and light configurations. For now the lights will be lit from 8pm-11pm. Those who have viewed the light show have noticed that the best visual impact occurs when there are short time periods when the LEDs go dark, before re-illuminating with vibrant splashes of reds and oranges.
