It was on this day, February 19, 1986, when the Lions Gate Bridge was illuminated for the first time, a gift from the Guinness family that initially had the bridge built. In honor of this, I have picked out some photos from the Miss604 Flickr Pool.

The 100-watt mercury-vapour bulbs, all 170 of them, were replaced in 2009 with high-efficiency LED lighting. This change cut the power consumption by 90% and now saves the province more than $30,000 a year in energy and maintenance.
