New street signs hit Bronx roadways to ease the flow of traffic

New bigger and better street signs have made their way onto Bronx roadways as part of the Department of Transportation's plan to ease traffic congestion.

Some Bronx drivers know all to well what it's like being stuck behind a driver looking for a street sign. It can cause delays, especially around the borough's busiest streets. To help, the DOT installed new signs at White Plains Road, Castle Hill and East Tremont Avenues. There are also new ones up and down the Grand Concourse and in Morris Park.

The DOT says the signs will give drivers a better sense of where they are and allow drivers not to look for smaller conventional signs. Some drivers say the signs are helping. One business owner says the signs are not only helping traffic, but they are also beautifying the neighborhood.
