Arlington, VA

Arlington County is planning to install more than 250 wayfinding signs along the R-B corridor, starting this fall.

The signs will be placed “along bicycle and pedestrian routes throughout the Rosslyn-Ballston corridor.” The first phase of the multi-phase project will include the installation of about 50 signs.

“These wayfinding, or directional, signs will help cyclists and pedestrians more easily navigate Arlington’s 100 miles of multi-use trails, on-street bike lines and designated bike routes, and its commercial districts,” the county said on the project’s web page.

While “frequent spacing of signs” is expected to “increase cyclist and pedestrian confidence” along the busy corridor, the county is being careful to no “over-sign” the area.

“To minimize sign clutter and maintenance costs, only the most popular or useful destinations have been chosen as to not ‘over-sign’ or contribute to sign clutter,” according to the county.
