MILWAUKEE — On Oct. 22, the official lighting of the Hoan Bridge will take place.

After a three-month installation period, the lighting on the west side of the Hoan Bridge will be complete. This week, officials will be testing the lights so you may see them on at night.

However, after this week, the lights will be off until Oct. 22 when the official lighting will take place.

During the official bridge lighting, Light the Hoan, Code the Hoan, and 88Nine Radio MKE will partner to create a music-driven light show in an effort to demonstrate the unique capability of the bridge lights and share the celebration city-wide.

Following the lighting, the Light the Hoan team will continue to raise the last $1.1 million of the $4.6 million project to light the east side of the bridge.

According to a press release from the Light the Hoan team, "the lights can be synchronized to respond to external events such as Brewers’ home runs, big plays at the Fiserv Forum, or even live music."

All funds that have already been raised were raised privately, according to the Light the Hoan team. No public dollars were involved.
