The bridge is just north of the 99 transition to Highway 180. For a lengthy span of time, it was marked by the word “EVIL.” A police spokesman said Homeless Task Force officer Joel Sanchez took the lead in eradicating the message. Railroad officials adjusted train schedules so a maintenance crew could cover the graffiti and CHP and police officers stood by to control traffic.
