Saint Francis colors will light bridge through Monday morning

Statement as issued Thursday by the city of Fort Wayne:

Fort Wayne, Ind. – Due to a programming issue, the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Bridge was only able to display the University of Saint Francis school colors for a brief period of time last night.

The programming has been corrected and Mayor Tom Henry has asked staff members to keep the bridge lights royal blue and white through Monday morning in honor of the Saint Francis women’s basketball team winning the NAIA Division II National Championship.

The colors will be displayed from dusk to dawn beginning tonight.
