Colorado Illuminates Landmark Mexican Bridge

Since March, 180 CHAUVET LED lights nightly cast hues of millions of colors showing off the columns and pillars of a new bridge in Pachuca, the capital of Hidalgo state, Mexico.

Only half of the bridge is lighted; soon workers will install an additional 180 fixtures along a second three-mile section, said Abraham Levit, owner of Novelties, S.A. the exclusive CHAUVET Distributor in Mexico.

Located 58 miles northeast of Mexico City, Pachuca has become one of the country’s most advanced cities in recent years. The bridge, which is earthquake-resistant, is part of a plan to modernize Pachuca’s infrastructure.

A total of 130 COLORado 1 and 50 COLORado 6 wash bank fixtures were used for the project. The fixtures uplight 60 columns, the tallest of which is 84 feet, and 228 bridge sections along the Luis Donaldo Colosio freeway, also known as Federal Highway 105.

The COLORado 1 comes with 36 1W RGB LEDs while the COLORado 6 operates with 108 1W RGB LEDs set in three pods.

The bridge project, which cost $18.2million, seeks to address the Mexican government’s stated goals of improving the welfare of its population and the country’s sustainability. The lights qualify as environmentally friendly as their LEDs are long-lived. By shortening distances the new highway, also helps reduce the amount of gas and emission of pollutants, according to Pachuca Mayor Francisco Olvera, who spoke at the bridge’s grand opening event.
