Some testing will begin next week on the Kennedy Bridge – but it won’t affect traffic.

MnDOT will test the bridge’s aesthetic lighting system from Monday through February 1.

"There's a controller you can program, so we test the controller to make sure everything's working right," said MnDOT engineer Paul Konickson. "They'll have it go through the cycle of a different color each day for a few weeks, then it will revert to its (normal) white light at the beginning of February."

Konickson says the testing is required as part of the project.

The two-year bridge reconstruction project began in February 2017 at a cost of more than 15 million dollars.
