When a crew with Columbia Association’s Open Space Management Division saw that this sign for the Swansfield neighborhood had been damaged, they went to work — removing it from the corner of Cedar Lane and Little Patuxent Parkway and bringing it in for repairs.
It appears that a vehicle struck the sign, according to Sean Harbaugh, the assistant director of Open Space Management.
“We found a turn light and a piece of fiberglass,” Harbaugh said Tuesday afternoon. “That was all that was left.”
The damage was largely superficial. The sign will need painting, some wood boards replaced and perhaps some minor touching up to places where the vehicle hit it, he said.
The repair work is now on the list of projects to be done. The sign will be reinstalled afterward.
“Our neighborhood and village signs are important to our community,” Harbaugh said. “We try to take care of them as quickly as possible.”
