To view the upcoming schedule for the Hoan Bridge Lights, please visit our regularly updated Light Schedule page.

We are actively fundraising to raise the funds needed to light the east side of the Hoan Bridge facing Lake Michigan. Our goal is to have it illuminated by Summer 2024. Our crowdfunding goal to light the east side is $2M. 

 

The monies raised from both the public and private fundraising campaigns will go toward installing thousands of computer-controlled LED lights to illuminate the Hoan Bridge on the east side of the bridge. A portion of the funds will also be put into a reserve fund to provide for regular bridge maintenance up to 10 years for both sides.
