New Haven’s Q-Bridge To Be Lit In Red, White And Blue

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ The Pearl Harbor Memorial Bridge in New Haven will be lit red, white and blue in honor of the nation’s veterans.

Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy announced Friday the bridge along Interstate 95, known locally as the Q-Bridge, will be lit Friday and Saturday nights in observation of Veterans Day.

Malloy’s office says the beacons, which are capable of projecting light nearly six miles into a clear night sky, will be lit until 1 a.m. both nights.

Malloy says “veterans represents the very best of our nation,” noting how U.S. men and women in uniform and their families “have made immeasurable sacrifices in the course of their service.” He says Connecticut is “deeply grateful for their bravery and courage.”
