GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- Grand Rapids asked the community and the community responded -- "Keep the Blue Bridge BLUE!"
On Tuesday, the Downtown Development Authority held two public meetings for input on the color.
Next spring, crews will add new lighting on and under the bridge, install benches, and make improvements to expand opportunities for events. During the beautification process, they will also repaint the bridge.
The majority of the people at Tuesday's meetings were in favor of keeping the bridge blue. The DDA will look at different shades of blue that will work well with new evening lighting.
It will take two months for crews to finish the work.
