Traffic is moving again on Owensboro's Blue Bridge after months of painting and repairs, but city officials want the bridge to shine even brighter with the return of dozens of decorative lights.
More than 20 years ago, a fundraiser was put together to raise money for lights on the bridge. Organizers say the more than 100 lights was a way to create excitement around downtown Owensboro and to market the riverfront to private developers.
The city turned off the lights when the bridge was being painted and will keep them off until an engineer determines they're up to code.
