A ceremony is taking place this evening to celebrate the painting of a Ventura eyesore. For decades the train trestle over the 101 was covered with graffiti. The bridge is the first thing many travelers see when they drive to Ventura on the 101. The City of Ventura teamed up with Union Pacific Railroad, Caltrans and the Ventura Police Department to paint the bridge silver this month. They also installed cameras to prevent future vandalism.
