“Refurbished decorative street name signs and sign posts will soon grace the historic College Hill neighborhood. A City contractor will be removing signs at about 30 intersections throughout College Hill to be refurbished, upgraded, and reinstalled.
“Supplemental signage to highlight College Hill Historic District will be added at 12 key intersections in the neighborhood. Decorative street lamp posts will not be removed.
“This work is expected to take about 60 days to complete and will involve the removal of all street name signs for several weeks.
“Also, some busy intersections lanes might need to be temporarily closed during this timeframe. See the map below of the work area (outlined in blue). Motorists traveling in the area for the next two months should use caution and be prepared to experience minor delays.
“College Hill residents have collaborated with the City’s Planning Department for several years to prepare this highly anticipated project.”
The College Hill Neighborhood Association has been working on this project for years. Jeff Sovich of the city Planning Department has been particularly helpful in moving it through the approval process. Many College Hill residents have given much time and effort to make it a reality. The project will be paid for with money neighborhood property owners have paid into the neighborhood’s Municipal Service District fund.
