Linglestown Gazette: Signs, signs, everywhere a sign

Signs, signs, everywhere a sign

The new Linglestown makes me think of the classic rock hit used in the headline for this post.

Thanks to state highway regulations (or someone's interpretation of them), Linglestown and Mountain roads are cluttered with an overwhelming number of signs over a short distance.

In my opinion, this is one aspect of the improvement project that needs to be revisited by local and state authorities.

Yes, I totally agree with your comments about sign clutter, and I hope something can be done to eliminate some of them. They fy in the face of one goal of the whole project--to improve the streetscape of the village.
A few more trees would help...and I wonder if some of the new ones planted survived the summer drought. Some appear to be near death.

The new signs won't help pedestrians to cross Linglestown Road unless crosswalks are also painted on the road. Even then, it's going to take time--and police enforcement--for drivers to understand that they need to stop when a pedestrian steps off the curb.

Maybe too much signage is the reason people are STILL not getting the roundabout rules? hardly anyone pays attention to the signs. . .especially the 20 MPH ones!

Some of the clutter is also all those tables on the sidewalks at the Eagle Hotel. What's up with that? At least St Thomas roaster built it's on paved patio for their tables and didn't use tons of those tacky umbrellas like the Eagle has. Not so sure that was the look the designers were going for.

What's the law on the posted pedestrian crossing areas?I have seen other signs in areas outside of Linglestown that are greenish-yellow that indicate that motorists must yield to pedestrians. (In fact, that type of sign was posted at some crosswalks before the project started.) The signs in Linglestown seem to merely point out where pedestrians cross. If that's why they are there, why not remove that unneeded signage? Pedestrians know where to cross. It's pretty obvious.In this village, people cross Linglestown Road when and where they find a break in traffic and when they know they won't die on the way.
