FORT LEE, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – The George Washington Bridge went green Wednesday night, but it had nothing to do with the environment.

The bridge connecting Fort Lee with Manhattan was lit in green in honor of the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts.

There will be a centennial bridging event featuring thousands of Girl Scouts walking across the bridge’s south walk to Manhattan on Sunday, November 13, 2011. That starts at 9:00 a.m. and will also feature activities on nearby Martha Washington Way in Fort Lee.

The bridge will remain green through the end of the month.

The GWB, which herself just turned 80 last week, was pink in October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
