COMMENT OF THE DAY: A LOW-COST LIGHTING OPTION FOR THE 59 BRIDGES “Send someone over to Walgreens and you can cover the whole thing in holiday lights for a 100 bucks a bridge. Chevy Chase will install them for free.” [kilray, commenting on What It Would Cost To Get Those 59 Bridge Lights Working Again » Swamplot: Houston’s Real Estate Landscape]

  • Check those connections! Rust is already showing on the newly painted bridges, $51,000 per bridge painting job, paid for by illegally taxed commercial property owners. Light connections must be missing some outside treatment. The $3 -4 million project would have been more appreciated on rebuilt underground pipes and streets. How long will these lights last in our climate and who is paying for the maintenance? Oh, what is the cost of running them every night? No one knows….
