16 Million Color Options Coming to Downtown Fort Worth

A new state-of-the-art LED lighting system is set to illuminate downtown Fort Worth.

The lights are expected to be switched on Friday in Sundance Square, a 35-block commercial, residential, entertainment and retail district in downtown Fort Worth.

The lighting system replaces the white bulbs that have outlined many Sundance Square buildings for years. Installers have used more than 7,600 feet of LED cable to outline about 18 buildings, mostly along Main Street.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that the system is computer-operated and has 16 million color options with unlimited program combinations, such as lighting sequences that jump the streets from block to block.

That ought to make turning the entire city purple for TCU events a whole lot easier ... or red for Valentine's Day.

Sundance's marketing director Tracy Gilmour says it has taken workers about 5,000 hours to install the lights and 100 hours to program them.
