Sign month continues as the emails keep pouring in. This post was written by a reader who questions the new parking median btw Neptune and Roosevelt and also questions the length of time it takes to repave blacktop.
The parking signs at Roosevelt and Park aren’t clear. This is what you see as you approach:
Instead of two signs on two poles with seemingly conflicting arrows, how about one pole with one sign that looks like this:
If necessary, put the words “One Way” under that, all on one pole.
In that same parking plaza, the No Right Turn signs look like factory rejects, the arrow is supposed to be centered in the circle and not touching any part of it, like this:
Instead, the ones put up look like this:
And why is the sign so low (or why did they use a sign post that is too tall)?
I think these were probably put in by Nassau County DPW, but don’t worry, here’s one courtesy of LB DPW:
That “street cleaning” has been going on for several weeks, maybe even a few months at this point — I’ve lost track to be honest.
Seriously, I get that we’ve had bad weather, but how long does it take to repave a short stretch of road that is well beyond it’s expected lifespan? What’s the cost to the city when broken down on a square foot basis to repave a road that has fallen apart and is that comparable to other municipalities? Has anyone run the numbers and found that it’s cheaper to wait until a road segment is completely unrepairable and then repave it (while constantly filling potholes over the years) as opposed to earlier repaving?
