Signs, signs, Everywhere there's signs

The City of Fredericksburg has started a project to re-sign the directional indicators around the city and add signs where they are needed. These new signs have a nice modern look to them, with arrows in addition to highlighted attractions. They don't quite have the contrast as some other localities, and a few signs are in dark locations, but all-in-all, I applaud the city for undertaking this task.

However, you wonder if the group installing the signs were given any leaway on placement, or what to do with old signage. Take a look at this location at William and Hanover streets. Putting a new sign behind the old historic downtown sign doesn't do anything to help drivers visiting the city coming north on William.

This is what the sign looks like for anyone wondering.
