'Most Wasteful' Government Spending of 2010
City Gets Funding for 'Slightly Different' Bike Signage - (Portland, OR) $900,000
Why have one bike sign when you can have two? Portland, Oregon spent $900,000 in federal stimulus funds on a new bike signage project even though the city already has similar bike signs, which it plans to leave up. "The new signs, which include arrows, distance, and travel times to key destinations, have a slightly different design than existing ones," according to a local biking website.
