I-4 Ultimate Project’s $300,000 “Artistic Signage” Towers Raise Some Eyebrows

Orlando Sentinel reports, “As the mega-rebirth of Interstate 4 unfolds, 90-foot towers costing about $300,000 each are being built as artistic signage showing drivers where they can hop directly onto the interstate’s new toll lanes. Builders in the gargantuan project have promised a ‘more aesthetically pleasing corridor through artful bridge design, lighting and landscaping.’” A German tourist asked for his opinion of the new landmarks tells the newspaper, “There are many things in the U.S. that we do not understand at all.”
