SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- A Bay Area philanthropist has stepped in to save the Bay Bridge's light installation.
Last week, local officials agreed to make the display permanent if the sponsors could raise $4 million to replace it with all new equipment.
On Wednesday, Tad Taube, head of a Jewish culture foundation, gave a $2 million grant to match the $2 million that's already been raised.
The Bay Lights display was made by artist Leo Villareal and first lit in March 2013 on the 1.8-mile western span of the bridge.
The new lights should be ready in time for Super Bowl 50 in Santa Clara in 2016.
