BOSTON BRAG: First-Ever LED-powered street sign name lights up in Downtown Crossing


Visible Tonight!
Mayor Menino Announces “Plugging in” of Boston’s First-Ever LED-Powered Street Name Sign

Mayor Thomas M. Menino today announced the “plugging in” of Boston’s first-ever LED-powered street name sign.  The sign, visible tonight at the intersection of Washington and Winter streets in the Downtown Business Improvement District (BID) area, is the first in a pilot program to test the new technology in Boston’s winter conditions.

“These signs look great, and I’m so glad they’re going up just in time for holiday shopping season,” Mayor Menino said.  “These signs will literally serve as a beacon, drawing shoppers into the BID to do their holiday shopping here, and helping shoppers, visitors, and everyone in between find their way around downtown Boston.”

The Fairmount Indigo Planning Initiative is a two year BRA study to develop short and long term strategies for improving the 9.2-mile Fairmount Indigo line, home to 1 out of every 10 ONEin’ers in Boston.

The City is looking for council from ONEin3 to help guide the planning process through input from young adult population. Mayor Menino is hosting a conversation on connecting the communities along the line to economic opportunities, jobs, transit and housing.  Please join in the conversation to help develop a vision for the future.

Other ways to become involved in the planning are by attending a community meeting, signing up for the e-mail list, or contacting the City Planners directly.  More info on the initiative and ways to become involved here.
