-- US 175 --

Several years ago, I reported a BGS typo on US 175 in Dallas for the EB Second Ave/Bruton Rd exit.  The sign, a replacement, spelled Bruton as "Burton".  I've forgotten the turnaround time, but it actually got fixed.

Further east, and also several years ago, it was reported that the local TxDOT facility in Kaufman wanted to update BGSes along US 175, as well as replace any that were damaged or missing.  I found an email address to contact that office, and asked if they knew about certain signs/assemblies that had been knocked down or missing for a while.  I got an email back from a director/spokesperson that was quite terse, telling me they'd already catalogued them all.  I rebutted nicely, asking if they would update old/outdated mileage BGSes.  Short and to the point: no.  The replacements didn't include signs for the East Fork of the Trinity River, between Seagoville and Crandall; there had been signs for the river previously.  (Usually, TxDOT is good about signing most rivers and streams.)  I asked about mileage signs, as there were none EB before the east side of Crandall, and the first one there only listed "Kaufman 8"; no Mabank, no Athens. (After recent roadwork to add a never-constructed EB service road there, that mileage sign has disappeared.)  WB mileage signs west of Kaufman only have listed Dallas; no Crandall, no Seagoville.

I've thought about contacting the Dallas TxDOT office about adding mileage signs EB east of the US 175 west terminus, and EB east of the I-20/I-635 interchange, but I was concerned I'd get the same treatment as the woman from the Kaufman office.  Now with the missing "Kaufman 8" sign (which really needed another control point mileage, if not 2), there are no EB mileage signs between the US 175 west terminus and the east side of Kaufman.

On the other side of the equation, one of my job duties is to monitor the catch-all inbox for my highway district. We got an email reporting a couple of downed signs, I reported them to the sign crew, they got repaired pretty quickly, and the constituent emailed back her appreciation.

It is not a sign, but I've reported faded guide lines for dual left turns to TDOT that nearly got me into an accident because I just could not see where the turn lane I was in was going, and they emailed me a week later saying they added it to their maintenance list for my district.

We got an email reporting a couple of downed signs, I reported them to the sign crew, they got repaired pretty quickly, and the constituent emailed back her appreciation.

Funnily enough, I've reported mine via comments on one of their Facebook posts, but the response was the same as what you said above for the nine I recently reported, and the person who runs the Facebook account said they'd pass it along to the crew who takes care of that. The first three had no response, but got a like and got fixed. Before those, there were two I randomly reported to WSDOT via Messenger, one of those being the Cabin Creek Road exit with camping being ahead in one mile on eastbound I-90, which took a few months to get fixed, but it eventually got fixed. The one time I emailed them about something using Contact Us on the website, I never got a response. And I know they're busy, but Facebook seems to be a better place.

Anyway, I don't know what constitutes being fixed quickly in this context, but hopefully those I reported recently and those I will report in the future get fixed soon, too. :) I'll probably break them up so I don't report too many at once. I wish they had a forum, where you could post this stuff. That would be better organized than just emails or Facebook comments, and then they could be marked fixed.

A few I forgot to mention in my OP that I still need to report are:

1) The "Freeway Entrance" sign is missing on the left, both here at the junction of I-82 and the eastern terminus of WA 14 for the eastbound I-82 entrance: https://goo.gl/maps/Y2U28Wq2rvWTJiccA and 2) here at Thorp Highway for the eastbound entrance of I-90: https://goo.gl/maps/Rosy7PnoZScXihHo9 It was standing in 2021: https://goo.gl/maps/mTpw34MukSs7Lv2s9 The one at WA 14 is mangled laying on the ground, but I think the sign is still usable. Straighten the sign out with a little bit of hammering–it'll still look beaten up, but that way they don't have to make a new sign. I don't know if the metal post itself is still usable. The one at Thorp Highway is missing completely or it's somewhere on the ground where I cannot see it.

3) On Interstate 82 in both directions, at Exit 69, the 69 mileposts are both blank: https://goo.gl/maps/rbnmpjREnEAdCi2y5 (eastbound) and https://goo.gl/maps/hL5ddysyb5TRrUx37 (westbound). I'm pretty sure there was another blank milepost I saw somewhere in Washington, but I don't remember where or which highway.

Is it possible this is intentional? That particular number is popular for theft. Kind of like Montana "accidentally" forgetting to replace mile marker 666 on US 2.

In some cases, we have reported the signs before they were even fabricated:

Caltrans contract 08-1F3724--errors found

Caltrans contract 08-1F3724--follow-up

We also had a member get in touch with Caltrans about proposed signs in District 7, resulting in changes.

Other members have found the DOT to be resistant to suggestions, or not discovered they were adopted until they found the as-built plans with amended sheets.

A word of advice. Always use the official means provided to report issues. If it's an email address, a phone number, a Web form -- use those instead of social media messages, comments, or replies. When you use those official means, there's a record of the contact. In our case, if you use the Web form, an email is automatically generated to both Frankfort and the applicable highway district. And emails are public records and are discoverable in lawsuits or other legal actions, as state Board of Claims cases. Social media is very unofficial, and it's possible that your comment won't even be seen, or it will get lumped in with the myriad of spam comments that come in. Just the other day, we were bombed by spam comments by one of those fake profiles sending that "I like your profile, let's be friends" to every female who commented on a post.

It ended up working out these last couple of times, as mentioned, but I will look into giving the "Contact Us" another try when I report more signs. Looks like it's just a form now and no way to attach images in the initial message. But if they need more info, then I can reply to the email with images that way when they respond.

As discussed in the previous thread, which is almost identical to this one, I've contacted IDOT and the Illinois Tollway a few times to make corrections or changes to their signage. I could contact them more, but I feel like I would become annoying after a while if I kept doing that. I try to keep my requests to only the most critical, where a sign missing is genuinely detrimental for purposes of safety or guidance.

From the standpoint of not being a pest:

*  If the sign is reported before it is fabricated, the agency and its contractor both avoid abortive expense.

*  Formatting issues, like too little space padding between lines or (frustratingly) the three-quarters error, generally won't attract action.

*  Although it may seem petty to point them out, reporting spelling errors is a PR benefit for the agency since that helps them avoid being the focus of a "they don't know how to spell" news story once the signs are fabricated and installed.

And add this big green sign to the list of signs I need to report, though since this is in the city boundaries, it may be an Ellensburg thing. Not sure. It was literally standing the last time I saw it, which was early yesterday (Thursday) morning around 1:00 AM.

https://goo.gl/maps/AmAPHMbeVmhGavdG6

It's laying on the ground. I'll take another look during the day, but I could see at least one of the wooden posts snapped. They really need to maintain their signs and pay attention and look for things like like potential wood rot. Either that or get rid of the wooden posts and do all metal poles, which are already used for many signs.

It's not the first time this particular sign has needed repairs, either. This is the sign in 2012: https://goo.gl/maps/aejQUCiaks55afgA6

Related to the previous post, is this sort of practice normal in Washington state with marking ONLY on the pavement? I've never seen that done before.

Are you talking about the "only" text itself or "only" in general–text or arrows? Either way, it's fairly common, yeah.

Interesting fact about this roundabout is that not a lot of people know how it works. Coming from US 97, heading southbound, the right lane is a right-turn only lane, all the way from just before the roundabout to the freeway entrance after the turn, which you mentioned above. That's for traffic getting on I-90 westbound only. The left lane before the roundabout is for going left, straight, or right to go toward I-90 eastbound/US 97 southbound. I've had people cut me off quite a few times because I was heading to get on I-90 eastbound, so I was making a right turn from US 97 (to continue on US 97 toward the I-90/US 97 concurrency) via the left lane before the roundabout and people who were in the right-turn only lane merged left. Merging into that lane because you're coming from Dolarway Road or University Way is fine, but it is illegal to merge out of that lane.

Here's a picture I took of the one I mentioned earlier that fell over sometime yesterday. It was already leaning forward just a little bit to begin with. It didn't seem too bad, but I don't think the winds we had helped. I don't know when it started leaning, but it's probably been gradually getting worse.

If all signs had metal posts like this, which ironically has been missing the US 97 sticker for quite a while, which I should report at some point, I think that would be far better than the ones that use wooden posts: https://goo.gl/maps/93kKJM8nX3isAFADA If you look at the 2009 version, the sticker was there then, so it fell off sometime between then and 2012.

3) Milepost 106 on eastbound Interstate 90 fell over a few weeks ago and is laying on the ground: https://goo.gl/maps/Nzv5EbF7Y5dJd4xw5

4) The "Right Lane Ends" sign before Exit 109 on westbound Interstate 90 fell over about a couple months ago and is laying on the ground: https://goo.gl/maps/cYTqUS5aUVWcDQNH8 It's after westbound Interstate 82 ends. The funny part here is that a while before that happened, one of the bolts for the sign fell off and the sign was upside down. That got fixed, but of course then this happened.

And since they're within the city where I live, here are pictures of these fallen over.

These are fixed, and I never got around to reporting them! :D

Quote from: Amaury on February 14, 2023, 02:43:56 AMOn January 20, 2023, I reported the following nine signs, which will hopefully be fixed soon.

1) The "Entering Yakima County" sign at the Kittitas County border on Interstate 82 westbound just before milepost 20 fell over or was knocked down sometime between November 29, 2022, and December 20, 2022. It was still standing on my drive to Haines, Oregon, on November 29, but it was down on my drive to Newberg, Oregon, on December 20. I find this one kind of ironic, considering #1 above: https://goo.gl/maps/MjAV8r6kb9X18qT26 It's hard to see, but it's laying on the ground next to the guardrail on the other side of the guardrail. (The most recent image is from September 2022, when it was still standing, so to clarify, I mean if you drive through there at the present time, you'll see it on the ground.)

4) The big sign here for Ellensburg/Yakima was knocked down a few months ago at the junction of WA 821 (Canyon Road) and Thrall Road: https://goo.gl/maps/tTYWREqJrUx3C98HA Somehow the posts are still standing. The pieces of the sign were on the ground, but they're gone now. Fun fact that I just discovered a few weeks ago is that this sign used to be a little more ways back, here, just on different posts: https://goo.gl/maps/dYiSyj1fu2ppocBH8 Google Maps doesn't have any images from 2013—2017 for this area, but in 2018, it was already moved, so it was moved sometime between 2012 and 2018: https://goo.gl/maps/EMGaYakeXewCNjZW6

I managed to get a couple photos of #1 yesterday:





And today I got a couple of #4:





*** BREAK ***

Now, today, I also got photos of a few more signs to add to the list of signs I need to report, if they're not already fixed before I have the chance to report them.

Both freeway entrance signs on the eastbound Interstate 90 entrance in Kittitas, Washington, are on the ground, with the one on the right a small ways away from where it actually goes.

Right side:


Left side:


Here is Google's latest image from September 2022, when they were both still standing: https://goo.gl/maps/RfCmY3PCtptiGm157

Also in Kittitas, the sign telling you which Interstate 90 entrance is which direction on the north side of the freeway, just before the westbound Interstate 90 entrance, has fallen over. My mom is the one who first noticed this one.

Milepost 14 on Interstate 82 eastbound is either missing or on the ground somewhere. This is it standing in November 2021: https://goo.gl/maps/BpRbqJW6D5VjNzzY8 Next time I drive that way, I'll pull over on the shoulder and drive slowly at milepost 13 to see if I can find it. I don't know how I would report a sign like this, though, since I would normally use a milepost as a reference point. LOL And it's not like the milepost 106 sign for Interstate 90 I mentioned a few posts above, which is now fixed, where I could have said Exit 106 for the reference point.

Similarly, milepost 114 is either missing or on the ground somewhere on Interstate 90 eastbound. This is it standing in October 2022, the latest image Google has: https://goo.gl/maps/LiSPCum7mv4AaqXDA

Noticed more signs on my drive today needing TLC.

Westbound Interstate 82, after milepost 97, the sign for Exit 96 being ahead in one mile is broken:







Google Maps image from when it was standing: https://goo.gl/maps/a5upq55s2Br8UoGx5

Also westbound Interstate 82, just before Exit 96 for West Richland and Benton City, a little bit after the sign above, the sign with detailed info on Exit 96 is also broken:







Google Maps image from when it was standing: https://goo.gl/maps/zEHayXtFJhRRxtAg9

Southbound Washington State Route 243, a little ways after milepost 2, the sign for the Washington State Route 24 junction with Yakima and Othello being ahead in one mile (SR 243's southern terminus) is broken, and it looks like it was crashed into, as Google Maps' latest image from October 2022 also has it broken:







Google Maps image from when it was standing: https://goo.gl/maps/VXsk871ovruBKTYf9

Also southbound Washington State Route 243, a little ways after milepost 13, just before Road 26 SW, the metal post that this recreation sign is on is heavily bent all the way to the ground:



Google Maps image from when it was not bent: https://goo.gl/maps/d4JKde1UASSYuFwr5

Milepost 100 on Interstate 82 westbound either disappeared or is on the ground somewhere. Here it is standing: https://goo.gl/maps/C9F8RPWsPuJKJZWD7 And if you look at it from the eastbound side, it has a more recent image from December 2022, which also shows it standing. So, whatever happened happened sometime after December 2022: https://goo.gl/maps/kUELQFsiTZEhjgQCA Although there you can see it leaning.
