There was a lot of anticipation Tuesday night as the community gathered to watch the official lighting of the lights 'under the bridge' - the corridor of Michigan Avenue beneath the U.S. 127 overpass on the Lansing/East Lansing border.

What was once a dark highway overpass will soon be awash in colorful light.

On Tuesday night, civic leaders will formally turn on the lights at the U.S. 127 bridge over Michigan Avenue.  That’s the spot many people in mid-Michigan view as a symbolic gateway linking Lansing and East Lansing.
