Long Description:
This sign is over-looked by most people. It is located in a triangular piece of grassy space and border by Hwy 99 and a semi-busy street. There aren't any side walks in the area reducing foot traffic.

I noticed the sign after the millionth time I rode past it on the bus ride home.


Hwy 99 has many names. Here are the names that I know as you travel north to south:

Aurora Ave N
Aurora Ave
Highway 99
Pacific Hwy
International Blvd
Old 99

None of these are nicknames and there may be more names. It can become VERY confusing to travelers.
