As the District continues its evolution, so too, the street signage is a matter of continual change.
For some time, the traffic light at Clifford and Chestnut remained red for upwards of 5 minutes for Chestnut St. motorists. That situation seems to have been addressed.
The JDA did an informal inventory of missing, damaged, misplaced and otherwise confusing street signs and posted the results here back in May 2017. Since then, many signs have been repaired, replaced or installed where none existed before.
The situation is not helped by buildings that edge narrow sidewalks and create blind intersections. Taken together with the Rhode Island habit of running yellow and — not infrequently — red lights, there's rich potential for disaster.
But things in May 2018 are looking up. Not perfect, but improved. A stop sign has appeared on Hospital where it meets as a blind interesction with Bassett. Some additional Do Not Enter signs now warn motorists not to enter the wrong way at more of the one-way streets.
There's still work to be done, as the gallery below indicates.
