The Los Angeles County Department of Public Works has embarked on a project to upgrade street name signs in the Hacienda Heights and Rowland Heights areas. The project is part of a County program to increase the visibility of street name signs along roadways with speed limits of 30 mph or greater.
Working with the Department of Public Works and Chief Administrative Office, the Board of Supervisors has selected the communities of Hacienda Heights and Rowland Heights as the next areas to implement the new street name signs. These new signs will have larger lettering and greater reflectivity at night to increase safety and mobility on the major streets of the communities. The signs will also include the community names of Hacienda Heights or Rowland Heights along with the Los Angeles County Seal to help bring a unifying theme of neighborhood to these unincorporated areas. Over 740 signs will be installed along the major streets of these communities.
"These new street signs will not only bring increased safety to these communities, but they will act as a Community Branding of sorts," said Supervisor Knabe. "Most of the cities throughout the County have street signs that signify the city, and our unincorporated areas deserve the same. Hopefully, these signs will help to bring these neighborhoods together."
Colima Road and Azusa Avenue have been upgraded with the new signs already and Hacienda Boulevard is currently under way. The remaining streets in the Rowland Heights and Hacienda Heights communities will follow Hacienda Boulevard. Public Works expects to complete this project by this spring.
