New Electronic Signs on Sunset in Echo Park

New electronic sign on Sunset & Portia

One of our readers emailed us on Thursday asking, “What’s up with the sign being put up on Sunset and Portia?” As it turns out, the electronic traffic sign is one of two – the other (according to the Eastsider today) on Sunset and White Knoll Drive. Eventually the signs will have “Echo Park” displayed above the electronic sign.

No word about what what exactly the signs will read when whey are up and running, but most electronic signs of this nature warn drivers about traffic delays, incidents, and special events. Lets hope they don’t encourage Dodger Stadium goers to turn up residential streets instead of continuing along the main drag.
