George, you are not seeing things--this is a common occurrence, both up there (where I'm from) and here in southeastern Wisconsin (where I live now)--I see political signs on overpasses a lot, as they're highly visible to motorists. I'm not sure what permissions are needed to do this, but it happens all the time.

This bridge is owned and maintained by the CN with BNSF having trackage rights over it. The bridge was built by the Duluth, Missabe & Northern Railway. (The DM&N became part of the DM&IR which is now part of the CN.)
