New street signs soon

Signs, signs, everywhere signs.

Bonney Lake is in the process of ordering and eventually installing new street signs throughout the city.

The Public Works Department has settled on a design for the new signs and will soon be taking bids for the manufacturing of the signs.

Public Works Director Dan Grigsby said the city expects the signs to cost $59 each.

"The signs will be installed over a few years," Grigsby said. "It will be a year-round job.

The city will prioritize the installation beginning with heavy traffic areas, schools and around the perimeter of the city.

'It emphasizes the unique identity of the city," Grigsby said. "It shows pride in the city."

The signs will be green for public streets, blue for private roads and brown for historic areas.

"Bonney Lake" will be written in a box on the left of the sign, with the street name in 6-inch letters to the right.

The signs will be 9 inches high and 36 inches long.

Grigsby said developers will install the new signs and the Public Works fixed budget, which is around $20,000, will be used to purchase city signs.

The signs will be put on metal post by city employees.

Along with the street signs, the city is also installing new manhole covers with a scene of a mountain and Bonney Lake cast on top.
