This was the situation:
MINNEAPOLIS – The Interstate 35W Bridge over the Mississippi River in Minneapolis will glow with rainbow colors on Friday, June 24, in recognition of Twin Cities Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride in Minneapolis.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation is providing the special lighting, which was requested by the non-profit organization Twin Cities Pride, with the support of the city of Minneapolis.
The 570 light fixtures on the bridge will wash the structure in rainbow colors, and another 48 light fixtures will make the bridge piers glow purple.
My girl and I were on a mission to locate some spots to view the bridge, this was our first spot, Southeast side.
