The overhead rail line that transects downtown serves as a vital commuter rail connection for the North Shore to Boston.
In 2018, Beyond Walls assembled a team of partners and worked to brighten and activate the underside of the shadowy overpasses with dynamic LED lighting installations.
The Underpasses of Central Square, Washington Street, and Market Street now have an exciting and visually compelling field of dynamic and color changing full-spectrum lighting that not only delights the eye, but contribute to pedestrian safety along the undersides of this public infrastructure.
Partners and Supporters for the Underpass Lighting and Neon Project include: Barr Foundation; BALA; International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local 103; Lam Partners; Students from Lynn Vocational Technical Institute; MassDevelopment; MBTA; Payette Associates; Philips Color Kinetics; Port Lighting Systems; Brickyard VFX; The Office of Community Development & The City of Lynn
