Last month, the Grand Rapids Downtown Development Authority held a pair of public meetings to discuss the repainting of the Blue Bridge in Grand Rapids.

Today the final decision on the future color of the bridge was announced.

The Blue Bridge will be repainted...BLUE!

Our own poll showed that over 60% of people wanted to keep the bridge the same color.  Calder Red was the second most popular choice.

The Grand Rapids Downtown Development Authority announced:

The Indiana Railroad Bridge is staying BLUE!  The bridge will get a new fresh coat of paint, new LED lighting that will change hue depending upon special occasions, and new lighting under the bridge.

Calder Red was my choice, but nothing wrong with more of the same.
