Minnesota’s I-35W Bridge to be Lit in French National Colors
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A Minneapolis bridge is joining other structures around the world in showing support for France after the deadly terrorist attacks in Paris.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation says the I-35W Bridge will be lit in the French national colors Saturday night and Sunday night.
Other structures worldwide have been lit up in the colors of the French flag - blue, white and red - in tribute to the Paris victims.
In Minneapolis, a Twin Cities group that promotes French language and culture plans a memorial march and service Sunday.
The march starts at 2 p.m. at Alliance Francaise in the Minneapolis Warehouse District. The march will go down Hennepin Avenue in downtown Minneapolis to the Basilica of Saint Mary, where a service will be held at 3 p.m.
