Why isn’t the Bascule Bridge lit in color anymore?

According to this link: The Charles Berry Bridge will be permanently and aesthetically lit thanks to the combined efforts of state, county and city officials and departments. The project, costing $250,000 to install, costs less than $1 per day to light for approximately five hours. The programmable LED lighting system is also low maintenance. The following government organizations provided funding for this endeavor:

Ohio Dept. of Transportation: $150,000
Lorain County Commissioners: $50,000
City of Lorain: $25,000
Lorain Port Authority: $25,000

A special Bridge Lighting Ceremony took place Friday, June 22, 2007 during 41st Annual Lorain International Festival & Bazaar. The movable trusses displayed a variety of color schemes ending with the colors of the Irish Flag – the spotlight country of the International Festival.
