EVALUATION OF ADIRONDACK PARK HIGHWAY SIGNS

Highway information signs distinctive in color have been proposed for New York's Adirondack Park. Consisting of yellow legends on brown backgrounds, a combination widely used in the park for non-highway signs, these colors replace the standard white legends on green or blue backgrounds used for minor destination, parking and rest area, and miscellaneous information signs. The visibility, legibility, and esthetics of yellow-on-brown signs were compared to the standard colors.
