The sheriff said the barge’s lighting would be part of the investigation of the crash. Authorities have said the barge was equipped with lights, but it was still difficult to see on the water late at night.
A spokesman for the $3.9 billion bridge project said the barges were properly lit Friday night, but lighting has since been added.
"We will determine if those barges were lit properly and if it was a factor," Falco said.
Pre-construction work related to the new bridge was suspended for the weekend but is to resume Monday.
