New signs, maps guide to downtown

        New signs have been erected in downtown Cincinnati to help people find their way to riverfront and downtown attractions and landmarks.

        The color-coded system is similar to one in Newport and Covington in which blue-colored signs direct pedestrians and motorists to riverfront sites, while bronze-colored signs direct them to downtown sites.

        In addition, new street signs with stainless street lettering have been installed on traffic booms along Second and Third streets to identify the north-south streets downtown. And 11 map kiosks have been added along Second and Third streets.

        The signs and maps are designed to help people better navigate construction and roadwork downtown, said John Deatrick, director of the city's department of transportation and engineering.
