A recent $640,000 refurbishment of Patterson Avenue in Shrewsbury included new drainage, pavement, crosswalks, traffic calming features and signage.
Lots of signage. Too much signage, in the view of some residents and officials.
A profusion of chartreuse signage created, in the words of Mayor Donald Burden, “that Las Vegas Strip effect.”
