Project Summary

Klingner and Brown Electric Company worked together to light Quincy’s iconic Bayview Bridge, which carries westbound traffic on Highway 24 between Quincy, Illinois, and West Quincy, Missouri. Lighting the bridge provided a safe, defined, and secure travel way at night as well as visual enhancement to the City’s riverfront.

The design featured supplemental above and below deck pier and cable LED lighting of the cable stay section. Klingner and Brown Electric Company’s conceptual lighting plan defined lighting elements and estimated costs for both installation and operation. This work required expertise in lighting design, installation, operation, and constructability.

In 2001, the IDOT repairs on the Bayview Bridge included rewrapping the suspension cables with a sheath that would reflect light. In 2005, the project was awarded IDOT HPP Funding. Private donations supplemented state funding, allowing the project to be completed in 2015.
