Mayor Michael S. Rawlings will flip the switch to the bridge's lights around 6:30pm, and it will stay lit for the next two weeks. During the ceremony, announcements are expected about the music and festivities for the official grand opening celebration taking place March 2-4.

World renowned architect Santiago Calatrava designed the bridge, which is more than 400 feet high in some places over the Trinity River. The cable-stayed bridge reportedly cost $93 million to build, and is a total length of 1,870 feet.
