Decorative lighting was put on display Thursday evening as a demonstration project underneath the Interstate 110 overpass downtown on the north side of Florida Street.

The Downtown Development District plans to spend $250,000 this year to add parking spots underneath I-10 and I-110. Part of the work will involve lighting the areas, with security lights over the parking spots and decorative lighting along the road.

Phillips Lighting and Color Kinetics set up the sample display. City and downtown leaders will determine a timetable for selecting a firm to supply the lights.
