Street signs can be an easy target for vandals. Most signs are within reach and attached to flimsy poles. The city of Eugene was plagued with sign theft, particularly in its South University neighborhood.
While a street sign might seem like a unique piece of décor, it is actually a public safety issue that can endanger lives. Stop signs help control the flow of traffic, and their absence could lead to an increase in car accidents. Eugene’s problem was especially pervasive as the entire sign, posts and all, were being stolen.
Luckily, as part of a matching grant program, we were able to provide the city with 10 sign poles. The new poles were 12 feet tall and installed in concrete moorings. The city hopes the height will serve as a deterrent, and that the concrete will prevent them from being uprooted.
We were happy to provide the city of Eugene with a streetscape solution to their problem. Our decorative poles left them with an aesthetically pleasing but functional fix. So whatever your signage systems needs are, we will work with you to create a custom look for your community.
