They say the neon lights are bright on Broadway (Bridge)

Posted By on Fri, Apr 19, 2013 at 3:22 PM

Just in this announcement:

Entergy to Announce Major Community Enhancement Project
Hosted by the cities of Little Rock & North Little Rock
Monday, April 22, at 9:00 a.m.
The Peabody Little Rock

Entergy Arkansas President and CEO Hugh McDonald
Little Rock Mayor Mark Stodola
North Little Rock Mayor Joe Smith

An informed guess: This will be the details of a project I mentioned earlier. Entergy is going to contribute to a plan to festoon the coming replacement for the Broadway Bridge with lights. Since the project hasn't even been bid yet, it's safe to say we're a good two years from seeing the finished product if I'm correct. And if we live through the downtown traffic catastrophe that is going to accompany the construction period, when the current Broadway bridge is demolished.

PS — It could be we might get a taste of the future with lighting on existing structures downtown.
