Tampa, Florida-- The RNC is right around the corner, and it seems Tampa is making some positive aesthetic changes in "light" of the event.

Tonight, the City of Tampa and Mayor Buckhorn lit five downtown bridges:

  • Platt Street Bridge
  • Brorein Street Bridge
  • Kennedy Boulevard Bridge
  • CSX Bridge
  • Lee Roy Selmon Expressway's Hillsborough River bridge

"Celebrating the Hillsborough River and our historic bridges is an opportunity to showcase downtown's best assets. Thanks to TECO, the Hillsborough River will never look better and our future, never brighter," said Mayor Bob Buckhorn in a release.
