Peace Bridge to reflect the colors of unity through Sunday night

The Peace Bridge is being lit in the colors of the American flag to mark the tragedies in Baton Rouge, La., Falcon Heights, Minn., and Dallas.

The special lighting, which began Friday night and is continuing Saturday and Sunday nights, is a call for national unity, according to the Buffalo and Fort Erie Public Bridge Authority.

“As we think about the tragic events of the last few days, it is important to remember what our flag stands for and the unity we all need to continually strive for,” said Sam Hoyt, chairman of the Peace Bridge Authority.
