As part of the intersection reconfiguration, the State Highway Administration installed new signs to aid in wayfinding for drivers passing through the area. These large overhead signs were placed on approach to the intersection and at the turns for the jug handles. Unfortunately, these signs make Four Corners look more like a truck stop on a rural interstate rather than the unique and historic community that it actually is.

|Signs denoting the crosswalks around the intersection are dwarfed by wayfinding signs that look like they belong be on the Beltway, and not on a community street with pedestrians, schools, and businesses|

|Removing unnecessarily large signs will help Four Corners look more like community again, and less like a truck stop.|
