There is a new addition along Congress Parkway that is expected to light up the area: 18 illuminated pillars have recently been installed along the medians of the roadway between Wells and State streets.

The 20-foot tall posts have been covered in tarp while city crews put on the final touches.

The light fixtures can feature 16 million colors, but the city will likely choose colors for the main schemes to present the seasons and holiday arrangements.

Transportation officials say the project should be completed by Thanksgiving or Christmas.
