JAMESTOWN – Jamestown’s riverwalk will be getting a little bit brighter.

Jamestown Mayor Sam Teresi announced Friday that the first phase of the Riverwalk Illumination Project was installed just in time for this weekend’s Lucille Ball Comedy.







The project called for new decorative lighting along Board of Public Utilities’ coal silo near the riverwalk.

The colored light and simple geographic designs will illuminate the silo over the duration of the festival with a more refined illumination and design to be completed over the next several weeks, Teresi said.







The project was funded via the state’s $10 million Downtown Revitalization Initiative grant.

In the future, the city hopes to install similar lighting on the piers under the Washington Street Bridge as well as the façade of the Main Street Bridge.
