The Zakim Bridge is lighting up for Brussels tonight

The bridge will shine in black, yellow and red, the colors of the Belgian flag.

Boston’s Zakim Bridge will light up in black, yellow and red on Wednesday night to show support for Belgium in the aftermath of a terror attack that claimed more than 30 lives and injured dozens of others in Brussels.

On Wednesday, MassDOT announced it would light the bridge in the Belgian’s flags colors to honor the city. Cities around the world have condemned the attacks and expressed their solidarity.

The simple act isn’t the first support the Commonwealth has shown toward Belgium. Officials from across the state took to social media Tuesday to express their condolences for the victims.
