    The Cascade Locks link points to a non-existent page. I’d heard someone talking about this last week, though – it sounds really amazing.

    What is the unfortunate part about replacing signs?

    • Tom Fucoloro says:

      Sorry, that wasn’t clear at all. The unfortunate part is that yield signs are not adequate for controlling neighborhood street intersections. For example, I am constantly avoiding close calls at 20th and Denny because nobody (biking, driving, doesn’t matter) takes yield signs seriously in that context. Yield signs are associated with on-ramps and merging, not four-way intersections.

      So I wish they would have taken this opportunity to replace the yield signs with stop signs instead of just installing a new yield sign.

      I do like that the city’s stop signs will be replaced with more reflective ones.
