ROCKFORD (WIFR) – The Morgan Street Bridge has only been open for 3 weeks and even before the ribbon was cut, vandals left their own mark on the $40 million structure.
The graffiti is on the side of the bridge near the bottom. Rockford Police say it happened around the third week of December, just days before the bridge opened to traffic. The city will remove or paint over the gang markings once it gets a little warmer. Police say 90% of all graffiti in the city is gang related.
