Wayfinding Sign Project in San Luis Obispo

As part of the city of San Luis Obispo’s wayfinding sign project, nine prototype wayfinding sings were installed in the downtown area; two pedestrian signs were installed and seven vehicular signs.

On Monday the city held a ribbon cutting ceremony to introduce the signage.

Mayor Jan Marx said, “Sometimes people have a lot of trouble finding their way around.”

Mark Loussararian, a San Luis Obispo resident, said, “I see a lot of tourists being a little lost and asking for directions.”

Loussararian said special landmarks like The Mission don’t stand out if you don’t know how to get there. He added, "Unless you stumble upon it it’s kind of hidden off the path.”

Bridget Fraser with the city’s public works department said engineers hope to increase visibility.

Fraser said, “Somebody could be coming down Highway 1, and they get on the freeway and completely bypass our downtown area.”

Marx said, “We want to make sure in a practical sense they are actually working.”
