Apparently the 74 beautiful new-old lights on the Burrard Bridge have some hi-tech aspects.
Controlled by gizmos located in one of the galleries above the central piers, the lights play all colours of the spectrum, and can change under program control.
Some, or all, of this will be displayed on Wednesday, Oct 25 at 7 pm at the NW corner.  Invitation PDF HERE, also containing great background on the Burrard Bridge.
 
Vancouver is Awesome (Lindsay William-Ross) has some more information on the lights from the Heritage Vancouver Society.

“The glass globes and bronze lamp housings are based upon an original surviving light fixture, and have been replicated by a BC company,” explains Heritage Vancouver Society. “They incorporate tri-LEDs, allowing almost any colour of light to display along the bridge.”
