Signs of Detroit Avenue Looking Up
As part of the city’s traffic signalization project, there are new signs popping up all over Detroit Avenue.
Signs, signs, everywhere signs.
There are dozens of new “way-finding” signs popping up above Detroit Avenue.
And there are more of ‘em coming.
As part of the $1.5 million federally funded traffic signalization project on Detroit Avenue, the city began erecting the signs from Arthur Avenue to the East End of the city on Monday.
Most of the signs are green.
In the Detroit Avenue commercial district, the city partnered with LakewoodAlive’s Downtown Lakewood initiative to post special dark brown “way-finding” signs.
Joe Beno, the city’s director of public works, said that the additional signs are coming this week and next. Those will point direct people to parking, as well as Lakewood institutions such as the University of Akron Lakewood branch campus and Lakewood Hospital, he said.
“They look very nice,” Beno said. “There will be even fancier ones coming, hopefully by the end of this week.”
