    The lights on the Ben Franklin Bridge will be dark until further notice.

    According to a statement released by the Delaware River Port Authority, the lights at the bottom of the Ben Franklin Bridge will be off until further notice due to a track rehabilitation project.

    The colorful lights change throughout the year, keeping in theme with the events of the city. They shine red white and blue for the Fourth of July and green during key Eagles games, similar to the lights on the Liberty towers.

    The DRPA has apologized for the inconvenience and thanks people for their patience. Once the track rehab project moves forward, the lights will be turned back on, but for now, it’s lights out.
