Nature Trail & Informational Wayfinding Signs

We recently had the opportunity to work with Action Research on the Maple View Street Biofiltration and Channel Restoration Project. 

The Mapleview Street Biofiltration and Channel Restoration Project proposes to improve surface water quality through implementation of green infrastructure and improved conveyance of stormwater flows. A series of biofiltration basins will be constructed within the shoulder of the roadway, allowing for infiltration and treatment of stormwater runoff. The project also adds additional green space, and new sidewalks to enhance pedestrian safety and mobility. Approximately 2,500 linear feet of new sidewalk and pedestrian ramps will be installed to close the sidewalk gaps along Mapleview Street between Vine Street and Pino Drive.

This was to build 2 Informational Wayfinding Signs.  These have changeable graphics and sit at a busy interception in Lakeside.
