Came across this beauty yesterday. I’d been here before, but it really just sank in how stupid this is.

Heading southbound on I-279 into the city, if you get off at the “East St” exit to go to the North Side, at the top of the exit ramp you’ll find our old friend the stop sign.

No problem,…

I go through this one every day on my way home, and I can kind of understand the thinking here. There’s actually a lot of lane-changing going on at this spot — people coming off the bridge need to get into the right lane to turn west onto North Ave, and people coming off 279 often need to get into the center lane to continue on East St or the left lane to turn east on North. The stop signs hold up traffic coming off 279, but they also make it easier for everyone to zipper together and get into the lane they need to be in when traffic is heavy.

Randyland, the quirky art house in the Mexican War Streets, is running a Kickstarter to fund the restoration of the Northside map on the outside of the building. If you’re a Pittsburgh map lover, consider donating to help them out!
