To the editor:
In consideration of the Coast Guard restriction of the colors red and green being used for navigation, the effects (regarding the colored lights on the Sakonnet River Bridge) may have limited impact for special events and holidays.
For example, the two most popular holidays have colors that are restricted: Christmas (red and green) and the Fourth of July (red, blue and white are accepted). And there is Valentine’s Day (red), still a favorite.
Too bad it was designed as is, in respect to the restrictions outlined, before project approval and construction.
