Several Campus Signs Damaged, Stolen

The sign at the intersection of Harmon Avenue and Fairview Street, which was reported missing Jan. 6, was installed in October as part of Facilities Management’s rollout of new street signs featuring the Razorback logo and colors.

UAPD received a report Jan. 6 that several campus street signs have been damaged or stolen over the past two months, according to the UAPD Daily Crime Log.

A staff member reported someone damaged a street sign at the intersection of Maple and Oliver streets on Nov. 19, a street sign at the intersection of Cleveland Street and Razorback Road on Jan. 1 and a street sign at the intersection of Harmon Avenue and Fairview Street on Jan. 3.

There are no street signs at the intersection of Cleveland Street and Razorback Road or the intersection of Harmon Avenue and Fairview Street as of Jan. 8.

The intersection of Cleveland Street and Razorback Road has three stop signs, none of which had attached street signs as of Jan. 8.

Stop signs at the intersections of Dickson Street and Garland Avenue and Razorback Road and Cardwell Lane were reported as missing, but both intersections had stop signs as of Jan. 8.
