Bridge lights done right

When Saskatoon put up lights on the Traffic Bridge, it was mocked because the lines of the Traffic Bridge aren’t that pleasing (and the lights highlighted that) but also because they rarely worked right.  When they did work, the motion looked like something you would see on the Vegas strip. Year after year, something was always working poorly and in the end, the entire thing was an embarrassment to the city.  Despite our inability to do it well,  San Francisco has.  They have done an amazing job showing us how a project like this is done right.  

Hopefully if we ever decide to light a bridge up again, we do it correctly.
