CITGO sign to be equipped with new LED lights

Notice something missing from the Boston skyline? The CITGO sign has been undergoing renovation since July 23 to upgrade its LEDs to the most “technologically advanced of their kind,” according to the CITGO website. This update comes as part of CITGO’s centennial milestone. The work on the sign is being carried out by the Federal Heath Sign Company. The new LEDs have been designed to improve the sign’s ability to withstand temperature change, extreme wind, water damage, and UV rays. CITGO expects the 45-year-old sign to turn back on “just in time for baseball playoffs,” or some time this coming October.
