The St. Elmo W. Acosta Bridge spans the St. Johns River in Jacksonville, Florida on a fixed span. It is named for City Councilman St. Elmo W. Acosta, who convinced voters to approve a $950,000 bond issue for the original bridge at the site. It carries a total of six lanes of SR 13 with the two-track Jacksonville Skyway in the median and sidewalks on the outside.
LED lights that can be programmed in any color (with the option for multiple color combinations) were recently installed on the Acosta Bridge, replacing neon tubes installed 20-plus years ago. The new LED lights can be changed for special events, like holidays and Jaguar games!
The LED system cost $2.6 million and was installed by Miller Electric.
