A Sign of the 5

New, 8 comments

There are new Caltrans signs up on the 110 North, marking the intersection of the freeway with the 5 North. Franklin Avenue points out that there was no sign for the 5 there at all until 2001, when artist Richard Ankrom posed as a Caltrans worker and installed "Guerilla Public Service"--an Interstate 5 logo and the word "North" squeezed onto a 110 North sign. Caltrans liked it so much they left it up until they got around to doing their own version. [Franklin Avenue, image via]
