Signage & Traffic Calming

In order to improve circulation, reduce congestion and improve visitor safety, a preliminary signage strategy has been developed for the day use area.

This includes signs to direct visitors to their destination and parking areas, identifies where access and parking for large vehicles (bus/RV/ vehicles with boat trailers) is located, as well as regulatory signage such as speed limits, no parking, and stop signs occur.

Upon arrival to Pinecrest, a new Gateway/Portal sign is proposed after the Summit Ranger Station along Pinecrest Lake Road. The purpose will be to reinforce the arrival into Pinecrest and will aid in reducing traffic speeds. At a pedestrian level, directional signs will direct users to primary destinations such as the marina, amphitheatre, fishing area, etc. All signage will be from a consistent palette of material and adhere to the USFS sign guidelines.
