"In an effort to make Uptown more pedestrian friendly and to encourage more pedestrian trips, a wayfinding signage program was developed to direct visitors, residents and employees to their destinations. The Pedestrian wayfinding signs were installed in 2007, and new highway and vehicular signs are being installed in spring 2010. By September 2010, dynamic signs at the gateways to Center City and at 15 parking decks in Center City will be installed providing real-time information about where parking is available so that vehicles can quickly and efficiently locate parking. The rest of the signage program will encourage them to walk to the remainder of their destinations, limiting vehicle trips and reducing congestion on Uptown streets.
