The lights are positioned so that drivers on the bridge can't see them. (Drivers southbound on the Embarcadero, on the other hand...)

I've been looking forward to this project since I first heard about it in 2011. The Bay Bridge is definitely underrated in its beauty, and many of my favorite photos of the city that I've seen or taken include the Bay Bridge in them and not the Golden Gate Bridge. It was originally supposed to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the bridge, but it seems the project was delayed a little bit. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing this massive art project in action in a couple months, though.

Would look pretty good as a backdrop for a concert on Treasure Island.

Indeed.

They could also do something for 4th of July or even like a New Year's Eve countdown.
