Pawtucket River Bridge
Pawtucket, Rhode Island
A landmark bridge displays a vibrant
welcome to a proud community
The City of Pawtucket wanted a lighting design that could change throughout the year to mark occasion with vibrant colour displays.
The Spyders were chosen based on a few factors – performance, pricing
and system layout. Spyder® Minis in RGB colour mixing were used in varying lengths across the full expanse of the bridge. Other areas such as the vertical pylons were lit with both Spyders and Spyder Minis in white.
Beghelli’s engineering team made several modifications to the standard
product to meet the needs of this job. Many of those improvements can be found on the existing products today. First, was that the project required specific environmental testing to ensure the Spyders could stand up to the climate and bridge vibration. A new mounting bracket was designed with a larger footprint and holes for easier installation. As LED technology improved, we also offered the Spyders with a lower wattage and higher lumen output.
