PennDOT Road Sign Sculpture Garden

I am always amazed when I see this place. The PennDOT Sign Sculpture Garden in Crawford County on Route 322/Route 19/Route 6, near the I-79 exit in Meadville is one of the zaniest attractions around. Instead of hitting the scrap heap like would normally happen with signs that are replaced, nearby Allegheny College created a public art installation out of them. The attraction seems to get larger and larger every time that we see it. Since the first time that I saw it in roughly 2010, I've always taken the time to appreciate it. We happened to stop at a service station and my jaw dropped. I always appreciate the older signs that manage to remain in use, but this was something unlike anything I had ever seen. The art spices up what would otherwise be a mundane location, a PennDOT maintenance building off of an interstate exit. Now this is something that we check out whenever we head to the awesome Conneaut Lake Park. located just west of here down Route 6.
