The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission (DRJTBC) today announced the iconic Trenton Makes The World Takes sign on the Lower Trenton Bridge will glow red and white through April to honor the selfless, heroic, life-saving efforts of medical professionals and first responders on the front lines fighting the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic.

The red and white color scheme – reflective of the Red Cross and the garb of nurses during the 1918 influenza pandemic – is in tribute to the region’s tireless caregivers who are courageously working to help people suffering with coronavirus.

The programmable sign lights are expected to glow red and white on every April night except Easter, when a yellow and purple program will be implemented.  During Passover, which starts April 8, the sign will be illuminated in red and white to jointly commemorate caregivers and the eight-day Jewish observance.
