Two people have asked...

About street signs along 10th Avenue North and why the lettered side streets are labeled with quotation marks. Above is the sign detail that guided the design of the signs. I have asked and will continue to follow through. My guess is that it is used to distinguish the "initial" from the "direction" so that if the street is a vowel, a word is not formed. I have looked through FDOT's handbook and haven't found a reference to this. You can check yourself. I'll let you know if I find out more.

I would suggest that in the meantime one should concentrate on other things, as this does not rank as one of the most burning issues of our time.

North "O" St. comes across as NO St. on the signs so I suspect you are correct in your assumption.

I always use the quotation marks for my address because mine does the same thing.
