Finding your way to places like the Durham Museum, the Orpheum Theater, Turner Park and the Lauritzen Botanical Gardens is about to get easier.
This week, the city started putting up the first of 88 signs meant to help drivers and pedestrians locate some of the city’s most popular destinations. The $800,000 project has been in the works since Mike Fahey was in the Mayor’s Office, but finally started picking up speed about a year and a half ago.
The first signs to go up are at the northeast and northwest corners at the intersection of 10th and Jackson Streets, if you want to check them out. The signs, like the examples here, were created by RDG Planning & Design.
Said John Sova, a principal at that company: “This will make the city of Omaha a better place to be. When people come here, they’ll feel more comfortable about being downtown.”
