The neon lights that used to light over The Miami River called "The Miami Line", may finally light again in the next few weeks, according to The Miami New Times.

The neon lights on the Metrorail tracks are the work of artist Rockne Krebs, who was commissioned in 1984 to produce the work for the Miami-Dade Art in Public Places Program. Initially, the lights only spanned 300 feet, but was later extended to 1,540 feet.

When "The Miami Line" first debuted, the city was not known for its lighting and that section of town was very inactive. Over the years, Miami/Brickell has grown to include many colorful buildings such as The Miami Tower and Brickell World Plaza, that only enhance the city, especially at night.

Below are photos of The Miami Line in 2012 before the lights burned out.
