Help light up the Jacques Cartier Bridge on Canada Day using social media

Just yesterday we published an update that the Samuel De Champlain Bridge will continue to show rainbow colours throughout all of July.

Now, today it has been brought to our attention that the Jacques Cartier Bridge will celebrate Canada Day with a special illumination every 30 minutes, from 9:25 p.m. to 3:00 a.m.

And according to the press release, the public can also take part in the show!

Since the Jacques Cartier Bridge is the first connected bridge in the world, whenever someone uses the hashtag #illuminationMTL on Twitter, the bridge will shine even brighter.

Here’s what the press release says:

Each tweet will produce a red or white “firework” effect on the bridge, and thousands of lights will randomly flicker along the structure. The bridge will take the pulse of Montreal's life and reflect it in the intensity, speed, and density of its moving lights which vary with mentions of Montreal on social media. Make the bridge shine on July 1st!

Please note that the bridge will not be closed to traffic. The multipurpose path will also remain open, but the sidewalk will remain closed due to construction.

Starting on July 2, the rainbow-coloured illumination of the Jacques Cartier Bridge will continue until the end of the month.
