Learn about the bridge's dramatic lighting system

In 2009, the Peace Bridge underwent an expansive renovation of its lighting capabilities, replacing traditional fixtures with innovative Light Emitting Diode (LED) units.

This new state-of-the-art LED system is controlled by sophisticated computer software that possesses unlimited color options, timings and themes, allowing the Peace Bridge to offer unique and captivating lighting shows at the push of a button. Such lighting options include special color themes for various American and Canadian national holidays, Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Sabres home games, as well as specific dates and celebrations like Halloween.

The system, which operates daily from 9:00 PM until 1:00 AM and from 5:00 AM through 6:00 AM, also requires less physical maintenance and provides improved security lighting for the entire border crossing. When the illumination shows are not in service, the bridge remains lit through low-level intensity beams of white light.

In 2020 the feature lighting system was upgraded with new technology and included adding additional lighting features to various areas of the bridge.


Lighting Requests


The Authority does consider lighting requests from the general public; however, such requests must meet the following criteria as determined by PBA bridge lighting policies:

1.) Applicants must demonstrate substantial support of the bi-national community surrounding the Peace Bridge and the Buffalo Niagara Region.

2.) Request must support a local or national awareness issue related to community health.

3.) Tributes or memorial requests will only be granted for well-documented local or national figures, or service members.

4.) Individual event requests must be for gatherings that impact the entire Buffalo Niagara region.

5.) Personal, individual birthday, and political requests will not be granted, unless in the instance of humanitarian concern.

6.) All requests must be submitted in writing (electronic submission preferred), along with a contact name, adress, telephone number, and names of supporting community organizations, through the form below.

**Due to some maintenance work being conducted on the Peace Bridge, all lighting requests are currently suspended.  It is anticipated that lighting requests should be available approximately the first part of June, 2022.  As soon as we know of the exact date when the lighting system will be operational, the lighting request form will be activated below.**
