Light the Hoan will bring a little light (literally) to these dark days as the project announced it will proceed with phase one of its mission and begin lighting the west side of the Hoan.

The ongoing effort to raise funds to illuminate the Hoan Bridge, which spans Jones Island and the Milwaukee harbor, connecting Downtown to Bay View, has raised another $500,000 of its more than $4 million goal.
In our second installment of "Behind the Bulb," we meet Cheryl Blue, executive director of The Corridor, which works to promote economic development, homeownership, safety and community empowerment.
We believe Milwaukee has never had a brighter future, and we want to prove it. Which is why we're thrilled to announce the launch of Light the Hoan's new neighborhood video series "Behind the Bulb."
The Daniel Hoan Memorial Bridge - aka "The Hoan" - will soon be permanently a-glow with seasonal lighting, and this week Milwaukee will get a glimpse of what it will look like in all of its illuminated glory.
Local artists Chacho Lopez and Benjamin Stark will paint a mural at Boone & Crockett on Saturday, Sept. 8 - and everyone is invited to watch the process.
Help shine lights on one of our city's best features, the Hoan Bridge. You can #LighttheHoan for someone you love, someone you think moves Milwaukee forward or someone that you know needs a brighter look at the world. This is Judge Derek Mosley's story.
