New Signage in Columbia Heights Metro

Thanks to all the readers who sent emails about this. I was away from my computer much of the afternoon but I really appreciate all those who sent the heads up.

I actually think signs that simply said east or west would be far more useful. What do you guys think – is the signage gonna help or confuse people?

DCist notes:

“According to Metro spokesperson Ron Holzer, the sign was installed at the request of Councilmember Jim Graham. “He said customers were confused about which exit to use for these two neighborhoods,” said Holzer.”

Also note that the Northbound and Southbound signs still exist by the separate metro entrances:
