Congress Parkway

Congress Parkway is a busy, eight-lane city street within Chicago's Financial District, so this lighting project had to strike a careful balance. As Chicago Department of Transportation project director Janet Attarian put it, it needed to be "visually interesting, but not distracting" to drivers. Twenty-foot tall, internally-lit columns were chosen to run down the median of the street. Flat, metal, sculptural pieces flank them near the sidewalks. Over 600 color-changing, LED bulbs light the columns and sculptures. RGB Lights performed the installation and system integration for the project as well as ongoing system maintenance.
