New, bigger street signs up in Waterloo; soon to be everywhere

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- An aging population is driving a sign of change on street corners across the country.

The Waterloo Traffic Department has already started installing larger, easier to read street signs. The Federal Highway Administration requires the larger signs to make it easier to read, especially for older drivers. All cities are required to install the large-lettered signs by 2012. Waterloo got a jump on it, installing more than 3,800 signs.
