New signs added in Washington to attract visitors


WASHINGTON, N.C. (WNCT) The City of Washington is hoping to attract visitors by adding to a system of wayfaring signs across the city.

The signs help pedestrians identify directions, landmarks, and entry ways. The project has been in the works since 2018, with multiple phases adding helpful ways for people to get around.

City Manager Jonathan Russell says what started off as something small is now a way of branding the city as a welcoming place.

“I think it just helps with the connectivity issue, and just mobility and travel through out the city. Making people aware where parking is, and other available points of interest,” said Russell.

Russell says phases of adding signs are expected to happen this year and next.
