SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. (AP) - The Sault Ste. Marie International Bridge is getting some colorful illumination starting this summer.

The International Bridge Authority says the white lights mounted on the bridge’s high curved arches are being replaced with LEDs. A red, white, and blue array of lights on the U.S. arch and a red and white array on the Canadian arch will represent the colors of each nation’s flag.

Work is expected to be complete by mid-August at the bridge, which connects Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, and Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario.

The lighting will follow a pattern similar to the temporary lighting strands that were installed as part of the bridge’s 50th anniversary celebration in 2012.

The improvements also are designed to improve energy efficiency.
