The graceful Park Row Drive bridge that crosses over the southbound 110 Freeway in Elysian Park is constantly covered with tagging. But in recent days, the same bridge has been covered in a shade of Dodger blue thanks to a crew of Caltrans workers.
The Daily News says the workers received permission to paint the north side of the bridge, which crosses the historic parkway north of Dodger Stadium, as “an opportunity to show some civic pride” as the team seeks to win the World Series.
But, unlike your typical tagger that somehow manage to crawl across the structure, a Caltrans worker painted the bridge while inside a basket that was lowered from a truck parked on the span. “How the taggers do it is beyond me,” Caltrans spokeswoman Lauren Wonder told the Daily News.
The blue paint will remain on the bridge until the end of November – regardless if the Dodgers win the World Series or not.
No word on whether the tagging and graffiti on the rest of the bridge and surrounding walls will get painted over at the same time.
