A campaign to add musical lights to Edmonton's High Level Bridge was given a boost at city hall this morning.

Councillors gave the green light to a plans to raise $3 million to light up the bridge with a state-of-the-art design synchronized to music

The group behind Light up the Bridge will raise the money thorugh private donations and buy-a-bulb campaign.

The group said the bridge was once a symbol of a the young city's confidence, ambition and swagger and should not disappear once the sun goes down.

Organizers believe they can raise all the money needed by the end of the summer with the lights installed before the end of the year.
