Street Signs Three

Can you guess the name of this street? I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw not one, not two, but three signs for this one street, and two are on the same light pole. Doesn't it seem when you need to know a street's name there isn't a sign in sight. This can be particularly true in Boston (and New England) where it is expected you should know the name of the street you are on without need of a sign to identify it.

Have you ever seen a street with three signs?

No, I've never seen an intersection in which the street was identified by three identical signs. I did, however, see an intersection where the Boston Transportation Department was equally negligent. I don't know whether the situation has been rectified or not, but for more than a decade the intersection of Clayton and Dickens Streets in Dorchester was marked by signs that read "Clayotn Street" and "Dicken Street."

Two signs, two errors. That's a batting average of .000!

Are they new? I don't think they were there a month or so ago. Well, dunno, I seem to notice missing street signs only! :)

Not only that, but the street's getting a ton of attention, considering it's like only one block long.
