A Nighttime Look at "Agua Luces"

The bridges over the Hillsborough River in downtown Tampa came alive Friday night - and will stay alive - after Mayor Bob Buckhorn flipped the switch on the new "Agua Luces" project.

The project illuminates the Kennedy Boulevard Bridge, Selmon Expressway Bridge, Brorein Street Bridge, the Platt Street Bridge and the CSX Railroad Bridge in vibrant colors that cycle continuously.  Click on the pictures above for a taste. And here's a map of the locations.

The lights are a downtown addition to the Tampa Museum of Art's colorful nighttime facade, which can be seen below.
