It will mark the first full lighting on the bridge, formally named the Pearl Harbor Memorial Bridge. It’s the first bridge in the state to feature commemorative lighting.
Gov. Dannel Malloy says they are thrilled to be lighting it for the first time for Independence Day.
The bridge will be lit up beginning at dusk on Sunday and Monday. The lights are capable of projecting six miles in the clear night sky.
The bridge carries Interstate 95 over the mouth of the Quinnipiac River and is among the most heavily traveled segments of the northeast corridor between New York and Boston.
