MLK Bridge Lights Up to Honor Frontline Healthcare Workers

April 3, 2020

City of Fort Wayne

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Bridge downtown will be lit up in red and white April 3 - 7, 2020 to honor local emergency service and healthcare workers on the front lines who are fighting the coronavirus pandemic.

The idea came from New York City, where the iconic Empire State Building is displaying a flashing red and white light on its mast to represent “America’s heartbeat,” according to the building’s Twitter account.
