WASHINGTON – The Verizon Center is about to get a whole lot brighter.
After a two-year fight, the arena’s owners have received approval to install two digital advertising signs. And despite lingering concerns about the bright light the signs will emit, construction is set to begin in several weeks.
The Washington Post reports that the D.C. Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs approved the permits for the signs this week.
Neighbors opposed the signs, arguing the light would be a distraction and an intrusion into nearby homes.
