I have often said that the twisted and tilted utility pole could easily be a symbol for Silver Spring. Pedestrians are certainly well-familiar with them.
A fitting sign for a place where the sidewalk abruptly ends. This sign should also read, "No pedestrians."
Oh, and here is another one on the next block.
There should be another, smaller sign just before this one that reads, "Sidewalk Narrows." I understand the need for signs this large in some circumstances, but speeds in this congested area should allow smaller signs. Smaller signs won't take-up so much of the walkway. In the interim, can't crews deploy these signs in places where they don't block critical passages (such as the curb ramp at this location)?
Is it too much to ask that construction site managers consider pedestrian access?
