Arborland Yield Sign
Question Corner March 2013
by Tim Athan
Q: I have a question about the yield sign at the entrance to Arborland. I never can tell who the sign is for ... the people entering from the Ypsi side, or the people entering from the A2 side. Can you get an answer from the owners of the mall?
A: The sign is for all! It isn't a true "yield," but something more like "caution." Westbound Washtenaw traffic has an entrance lane, and so does eastbound. These two lanes meet but continue in parallel, so "yield" applies only to cars seeking to merge into the other lane. The intent of the sign is to alert drivers that two sources feed the entrance road.
