Ben Franklin Bridge Receives an LED Lighting Upgrade

by | Apr 13, 2023 | 0 comments |

The Ben Franklin bridge is receiving a new makeover with a complete LED lighting system upgrade. The new lighting on the bridge has lighting controls that allow for different colors that will be changed for special events like holidays, sporting games and more. Currently, the lights are installed on the north side of the bridge and the south side is still under renovation. The bridge is nearly 200 years old and is on the fourth phase of the $200 million plan for upgrades and renovations. The bridge stretches across the Delaware River leading travelers between Philadelphia, Pa. and Camden, N.J.

“This is something different. This is going to be animated, it’s going to be so just great for our city when we’re having events here when people are crossing this bridge and it’s a reflection of this community,” Camden Mayor Victor Carstarphen said. “It is a reflection of this region and where we’re going. The excitement that’s going on in this region, this city, this area, this bridge will show what’s going on with a whole new dynamic that I’m excited for.

LED lighting technology and next generation LED upgrades can open the doors to implementing lighting controls technology to commercial buildings and converting it to an intelligent building. Lighting controls help facility managers and building owners to change color or brightness of lights in certain rooms or zones, plus schedule or have sensors to turn lighting on and off.
