My colleague Rachel Psutka had a story in the paper today about a west-end resident finding approximately one dozen Guelph street signs -- including road name signs and stop signs -- in a ditch along Fife Road.
That prompted a reader to email to let us know the west-end does not have a monopoly on signs in ditches, but that there were some along Victoria Road just before the Speed River bridge.
I was heading out that way so I stopped and had a look. Unlike the signs in Rachel's story, which had the top portions of their poles cut, these appeared to still be attached to the full posts. They also did not appear to have been transferred from elsewhere, as I believe the two signs I came across -- this speed limit sign and one advising of the beginning of a bicycle lane -- previously stood in that section of Victoria Road.
My guess is someone either pulled them out of the ground and dumped them, or they were taken out by a snowplow or some other large vehicle and just haven't been re-erected.
