Near this intersection, the SW Regional LRT crosses over Valley View Road. For years, a bridge stood over Valley View that was perpetually coated with graffiti: messages for birthday congrats and wedding requests, drawings, and the occasional mural of Prince.

Prince (who lived in the area) must have appreciated it, because his follow-up to his smash film/album Purple Rain was the mediocre album/film Graffiti Bridge in 1990.

The bridge was removed in 1991, and was replaced with the clean and graffiti-free bridge that is there today.
