BRIDGE LIGHTING BRIGHTENS MIAMI SKYLINE

The Miami skyline is a lot brighter with the lighting of the award-winning Port of Miami/Dodge Island Bridge. Under the direction of Miami Beach's Beiwenger, Hoch and Associates (BHA), a special architectural lighting scheme was developed and implemented for the bridge using metal halide lamps to accentuate the city's downtown skyline. The bridge connects the largest cruise ship port in the world with downtown Miami. It provides unrestricted access over the coastal waterway to the growing Port of Miami, a vibrant center for the city's economy, bolstering the Port's unique dual role as "cruise capital of the world" and providing for cargo shipping, which has a total annual impact on the local economy estimated at $5 to $6 billion a year.
