The plan is to use the first coat of graffiti as concrete sealer and paint over it in white.

I am with Coldrsx on this one. I also like the contrast that provides focus to the sweeping bridge spans.

One thing that bothers me is how rarely they use variation in the lighting feature on the Bridge. Don't get me wrong, the white light is gorgeous but the few times they've run a theme (like the aurora theme they ran a few months back) was spectacular. It just seems like they've only used it maybe a handful of times in the entire year...anyone we can ask about this?
