Old Coddger: Signs show us the way

Response to Writer says travellers ought to know where KY 80 is - without signage

Old Coddger writes
In response to the comment by an unknown author, to my remark about the need for a sign at the corner of the Square and Jamestown Street showing that was also KY 80 E along with being KY 55 S. It has been my experience that if there is signage directing me into an intersection (Public Square) there will be sinage directing me out of that intersection, even if it is straight thru.

There are signs onto the Square if you are coming in from 80 W, and the only other direction is on the Greensburg St side of the "Old Courthouse" lawn, pointing you around the Square, not which street to take off the Square. If we stop and think a moment, to even see this sign, if you come into town from 80 W, you have to do almost a full circle of the Squre to see it, when all you had to do was take the next street off the Square, if there was a sign there to direct you.

Very simply if there are road signs showing us to any point, and the road continues on, then there should be signs to show us that also. -Old Coddger
