Last week, President Ferdinand “Bong-Bong” Marcos Jr. officially switched on the San Juanico Bridge aesthetic lighting project. With it, the 2.16-kilometer bridge linking the provinces of Samar and Leyte is now adorned with a unique light show that can be customized depending on the occasion.

But when will interested onlookers and tourists expect when will the light show to happen? According to the Samar provincial government, the light shows will take place during weekends.

In a recent announcement, the LGU shared that the bridge will be lit up by static light from 6:00 PM to 12:00 AM every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. And between 7:00 PM and 10:00 PM, the bridge will feature four 15-minute light shows. From Mondays to Thursdays when there will be fewer visitors, static light will illuminate the San Juanico Bridge albeit for a shorter period of time from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM only.

“The static light display is the steady red, blue, and green color display while the dynamic display features the captivating light show,” said the LGU.

In review, the proponent of the PHP 80-million aesthetic lighting project is the local government of Samar which was funded by the Tourism Enterprise Zone Authority (TEZA). The local government will also be the one that will pay for the electricity and assume the task of maintaining the lights.
