DeEvening Links: Everywhere there’s signs

WUSA-TV visits the DDOT sign shop to watch the city’s newfangled street signs getting made. That’s followed by some ill-informed griping from the Channel 9 airstaff about the estimated $2 million cost of replacing the old all-caps signs with the new mixed-case signs over six years. Um, guys? They have to replace the signs regularly regardless; the new design isn’t costing taxpayers any more than the old one.
