Pacific Power and Multnomah County instigated the green and yellow lighting scheme on the Morrison Bridge as a way of recognizing the Ducks' run in the NCAA tournament. It was a way of expressing state pride in the accomplishments of the Ducks.
The energy efficient lighting was recently installed on the bridge from funds donated by Pacific Power.
"We're proud of our Oregon Ducks getting to the Sweet 16," said Pat Reiten, president of Pacific Power in a media release. "What a great way to show the team that Portland is behind you all the way. And for Pacific Power, we have customers from Astoria to Klamath Falls, Pendleton to Coos Bay and Portland to Medford. I know I speak on behalf of our customers when I say we hope these lights are a sign of good luck when the Ducks take on UNLV later this week."
Multnomah County maintains the bridge. The color scheme will remain while the Ducks play their way through the tourney.
"The new lights were a perfect way to say 'Go Ducks,'" said Multnomah County Commissioner Maria Rojo de Steffey, whose district includes the bridge. "We'll keep them lit in yellow and green as long as the Ducks keep winning."
