I love it, the sides that is, it doesn't look like graffiti, it just looks like art to me and greatly enhances the bridge, I don't like it on the road though, then again I'm a little weird

Well, at least they are consistent with their decoration of the bridge. The concrete structure suggest this is quite an old bridge ?

@Michael: My guess would be between 1910 and 1920. I'll try to find out the exact date.
An amazing bridge! Never saw one like it before. I gather it's not used anymore?

@Betty: It is heavily used - even by large agricultural trucks. Many, many bicycles as well in that this is about 15 km ( 9 mi) from Davis, California, the bicycle capitol of the U.S.
It's the first time I see such a bridge. Thank you to share it with us

Nice catch Stephen.....they sure do have it covered......I'm thinking if this bridge is used, it must be infrequently...hence all the uninterrupted time for tagging!!

@Susan: Greetings Susan - thanks for the visit. This bridge gets a lot of traffic - mostly in the morning and late in the day. It is a heavy agricultural area - so lots of trucks and service vehicles. Fortunately for the taggers - you can hear traffic for quite awhile before it gets to the span.
Amazing shot! What happened to this bridge?

I like this. Am sure that if I'd grown up around there I'd have left my mark somewhere on this span.

@Anthony Morgan Lambert: The secret is revealed to all my AM3 friends on Thursday.
This old bridge full of multicolored graffiti has almost some charm.
