Atlantic Boulevard Bridge Grand Opening and Christening Ceremony 7:00pm | 3109 East Atlantic Boulevard

The City of Pompano Beach is holding an official Grand Opening and Christening Ceremony of the Atlantic Boulevard Bridge improvement project. Construction of the $5 Million renovation, funded by the City’s Community Redevelopment Agency, began in August of 2018 to provide much needed enhancements to the Atlantic Boulevard Bridge.

One of the most interesting features of the improvements are two large tensioned sails at each end of the bridge with a computer-operated lighting system allowing the sails to change colors for special occasions. For example, the Fourth of July will be lit up red, white and blue. The idea behind the nautical sails is to continue the iconic theme of the illuminated sails featured on the City’s Beach Parking Garage.

Guy Harvey-like artwork underneath the bridge welcomes boaters and sightseers alike as the new promenade underneath the bridge connects the north and south sides of Atlantic Boulevard leading to a viewing plaza on the Intracoastal Waterway. Design and construction enhancements were also made to the bridge tender house.

Pompano Beach Mayor Rex Hardin and City Commissioners will inaugurate the lighting of the sails with a celebratory christening complete with champagne bottles. Immediately following the ceremony, guests will be allowed to walk along the new bridge promenade to view the new artwork and meet artist Dennis Friel who will be on hand for signing complimentary art replicas. The night will also include live music and refreshments.

*Parking for the event will be free in the Oceanside Parking Lot located at 100 N. Riverside Drive*.
