Sign Reflectivity to Be Studied for $72,000

A private consultant, for the price of $72,000, will be hired by City Hall to determine if the 20,000 “regulatory” road signs within city limits are still adequately reflective or if they’ve grown too dull. Sign reflectivity, the councilmembers were told, is especially important given the large number of older drivers on the road. The road signs in question pertain to speed limits, parking, and yielding. Winning the contract was Transmap Corporation, which has been testing road sign reflectivity for 18 years.
