Neighborhood Sign on Beltway Overpass – What Do You Think?



Yesterday, a resident asked if anyone has ever thought about painting the neighborhood signs on either side of the 495 underpass similar to Ellicott City?

I think I like the idea. The SHA is currently doing a preliminary design work on a full interchange along I-95/I-495 at the Greenbelt Metro Station. The bridge falls withing the scope of the work. Here is the map showing the limit of the work. They are expected to publish the design some time early next year. At that time they will come back to the community to present it and get more feedback. We should definitely discuss this idea with them at that time.

From the City side, we could also do this. For that, we’ll need to coordinate with the SHA and the County (the Rhode Island is owned by the County). In a few months, we will get the community engaged with the preliminary design ideas.

Let me know what you think.
