New Directional Signs in Ann Arbor

In the past two weeks, Ann Arbor Downtown Development Authority has mounted over 200 tall signs that will allow visitors and new students to better navigate the streets and find important buildings on campus. The signs are divided into four sections (State Street, South University, Kerrytown, and Downtown Ann Arbor).

Although I find the signs very unique, I noticed some already have errors pointing certain locations in the wrong direction. If you memorize the area, you will rely less on the tall posts. There is some controversy over these signs because Ann Arbor is not a big city. Overall, guests won't feel intimidated when they ask strangers for directions to such-and-such place.
