Crews attempt to remove graffiti; it doesn’t work

Earlier this month I wrote about the graffiti on the Hain Road bridge over Interstate 83 in southern York County.

It turns out this fix will be anything but easy.

Crews tried power washing the bridge last week to remove the graffiti. But it didn’t come off.

It appears the bridge will have to be repainted, said Mike Crochunis, a spokesman with the state Department of Transportation.

“They did give it a shot,” he said.

Some bridges are painted with anti-graffiti paint, but this one apparently was not, Crochunis said.

This is the second time the span has been tagged. It also was marked during construction.

What are your thoughts on this? Should PennDOT leave it the way it is, or spend more money to repaint it?
