The City of New Haven plans to replace many of the city's pedestrian and street signs in 2014.
According to the Yale Daily News, many of the signs have grown out of date. The city will use a $670,000 grant it won in 2011 to renew its signage system.
Many of the signs are over 20 years old. They are being replaced because they contain out-of-date information or appear decrepit. Many are worn or pealing or are leaning over.
City officials also hope to add signs that will market destinations throughout the city.
Additionally, the project will add pedestrian signs in the downtown area, and other areas in the city with high pedestrian traffic.
Fieldwork on the project will begin in 2014, and the signs will be place in 2015.
