Governor Andrew Cuomo’s office has announced plans for a LED light show on the new Kosciuszko Bridge to celebrate Mother’s Day. According to Gothamist, the light show will begin at dusk on Sunday, May 14, showcasing a "splash of springtime color" ("soft pink, yellow and orange"), and will continue into Monday morning.

"While no substitute for flowers, this celebration is one small way to thank hard-working moms across New York for everything they do," Cuomo said in a statement.

This marks the second light show for the new bridge. After a grand opening ceremony held during the bridge’s daytime debut on Thursday, April 25, Governor Cuomo hosted a light show that evening as part of his bridge lighting initiative as a way to promote tourism.

The Mother’s Day light show is a kind gesture and perhaps will be a distraction from the fact that the Kosciuszko Bridge is already riddled with traffic congestion.
