On Thursday, March 5, the bridge will have blue lighting to honor our area police officers.  DRPA is joining the Philadelphia FOP and Dom Giordano, The Big Talker 1210, of WPHT, to turn the whole region BLUE for the day, to show support for all the men and women who put their lives on the line for us.

On Tuesday, March 17, the bridge will have green lighting for the observance of St. Patrick's Day.
