Veteran's Glass Skyway





Working closely with the engineering design team, the community and the Toledo Arts Commission, the lighting concept developed for this signature bridge reflects Toledo’s history as the “Glass Capital of the World”. Through a series of public workshop sessions, a final bridge design was selected that centers around a glass enclosed pylon that glows with colored lighting, creating a playful and unique nighttime landmark for the city of Toledo. State-of-the-art LED lighting technology provides the long life, energy-efficient source needed to create this infinitely flexible lighting system. The bridge lighting was unveiled at a gala event in June 2007, which elicited the following comment when posted on YouTube: “Holy Toledo!!! That's gorgeous! This is so great for the city!
