R&D Lighting Design Helps Brighten the Passage

2021-01-04T11:19:38-06:00

Starting January 4, the passage under Interstate 794 from the Historic Third Ward to downtown Milwaukee will be more beautiful, bright and interactive with the installation of a programmable aesthetic lighting system as part of the Brighten the Passage project.

The lighting system, installed on the freeway support piers on Broadway and Water Street between Clybourn and St. Paul Streets north of the Milwaukee Public Market, features a nightly light show that will alternate by season, events, sports teams and holidays. The show includes interactive color spotlights on the sidewalks.

Ring & DuChateau provided lighting design services, spearheaded by Associate and Lighting Design Team Manager Holly Blomquist, for the project.

The Brighten the Passage project, which aims to strengthen pedestrian connectivity between the Historic Third Ward and the downtown area, also includes four vibrant, themed murals painted in September 2020 on the freeway support piers on Broadway.
