Stewart Bridge to turn blue in honor of police

The Robert N. Stewart Bridge, which spans the East Fork of the White River and brings people in to Columbus, will take on a blue hue over the next.

The bridge, named after the late Columbus Mayor, has LED lights installed throughout the structure that allows city officials to light the bridge however they please during overnight hours. Lt. Matt Harris, spokesman for the Columbus Police Department, says that that the lighting is meant to support law-enforcement, as well as honor the police killed and injured in recent attacks.

Harris says that the lighting display begins tonight and will last for one week.
