HARTFORD, CT - Governor Ned Lamont announced that the State of Connecticut will illuminate the Pearl Harbor Memorial Bridge in New Haven – informally known by residents as the Q Bridge – in red, white, and blue lights on the evenings of Sunday, November 10 and Monday, November 11 in observation of Veterans Day.

Beacons capable of projecting lights nearly six miles into the clear night sky will shine on the bridge from sunset until 1:00 a.m. during each of those nights. The bridge is operated and maintained by the Connecticut Department of Transportation.

“The veterans who served our nation have performed an immeasurable service to each and every one of us, and we are indebted to the sacrifices they made in their lives in the course of their duties,” Governor Lamont said. “Veterans face many challenges upon their return to civilian life, and we have an obligation to meet their needs and ensure that they have the resources necessary to live and work outside of the military, including through good healthcare, education and workforce development training, and affordable housing. On behalf of the State of Connecticut, I thank all of the nearly 280,000 veterans who live in our state – they represent the very best of this country and we are forever grateful for everything they’ve provided.”

“I will always be grateful to the brave Americans who answered our country’s call of duty and served in our Armed Forces,” Lt. Governor Susan Bysiewicz said. “These men and women put their lives on hold and made tremendous sacrifices to protect our freedoms. I hope everyone in Connecticut will join us this Veterans Day in celebrating and thanking all veterans across our state. They will forever be our heroes.”
