VIDEO Watch the Jacques Cartier Bridge light up for the first time

Thousands of Montrealers watched the controversial and costly illumination of the Jacques Cartier Bridge, part of Montreal's 375th anniversary celebrations, go live for the first time Wednesday night.

It took the collaboration of seven companies, more than 2,800 light fixtures and plenty of trial and error to bring to fruition the $39.5 million project, dubbed "Living Connections," in time for the city's big bash.
