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

      Strange. Thanks for pointing that out. It’s a wire story, so here’s the ST version: http://seattletimes.com/html/outdoors/2021897881_columbiarivergorgeoutdoorsxml.html

    What is the unfortunate part about replacing signs?

    1. Tom Fucoloro

      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.
