CAPITAL Improvement for Street Signs
DC Street signs have been receiving a
face lift font update since January 2012. Signs previously rendered in all capital letters will now be rendered in mixed case, following a new federal design standard. The update is meant to make the street signs more legible.
Here are some in southern Park View. In comparing the new signs against the all caps versions, it appears that low-hanging letters – like the Y in KENYON – show up better as ALL CAPS, compared to what could be mistaken as “Kenvon”.Explore posts in the same categories: DDOT, Random Observations, Transportation comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
