I wrote about this last summer but never managed to get down to SoDo to do it: buying a surplus street sign.
But, thanks to Jules James at Lake Union Mail, I now have an Eastlake Avenue E. sign of my very own. Excellent!
The City of Seattle has been phasing out the old aluminum signs in favor of new, larger fiberglass signs. The old signs go to the city's surplus warehouse at 3807 2nd Ave. S., behind the City Light warehouse just south of the Spokane Street Viaduct. The signs are either $5 or $10, depending on the size.
There's a list of which street signs are still available. Looks like there are a few in the neighborhood, include some Eastlake Avenue signs, but their stock is definitely down from what it was last summer. It's always a good idea to check with the warehouse before you drive down there.
The warehouse is open Monday-Friday, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Questions? Call them at (206) 684-0827 or e-mail email@example.com.
Where do the old signs go?
Thank's to the sleuthing of the Central District News, we now know that they go to the City of Seattle's surplus warehouse at 3807 Second Ave. S. (behind the City Light warehouse just south of the Spokane Street viaduct). The old signs are cheap: $5 to $10 each.
There's a list showing what signs are in stock. Eastlake Avenue E. is there, as are E. Blaine, E. Boston, Boylston, E. Edgar, Fairview Avenue E., E. Galer, E. Garfield, E. Hamlin, Harvard Avenue E., E. Louisa, Minor Ave., E. Newton, E. Roanoke, Yale Pl. E. and probably a bunch of others I've missed.
The warehouse is open Monday-Friday, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Questions? Call them at (206) 684-0827 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hoping to get down there Friday and pick up a certain street sign I have in mind!
Thanks, Scott, for finding out about this (and MyBallard.com for posting it also).
