LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Entergy) - Three bridges spanning the Arkansas River between Little Rock and North Little Rock will be illuminated by the end of the year, thanks to a gift from Entergy Arkansas and the Entergy Charitable Foundation.
That announcement was made today by Hugh McDonald, President and CEO of Entergy Arkansas and Little Rock Mayor Mark Stodola.
In addition to Entergy, the cities of Little Rock and North Little Rock, as well as the Clinton Foundation, the Pulaski County Junction Bridge Authority, Philips Lighting Company and Koontz Electric are investing in the $2.4 million project. Philips Lighting, which has installed lighting on several landmarks throughout the world, will provide the LED lighting for the three bridges.
McDonald said the project is an appropriate way to recognize the company's 100th anniversary and its founder, Harvey Couch.
