Read the wayfinding sign contract

Xpress has the contract for the infamous peeling wayfinding signs, available for the public to read.

While the nearly 200-page contract, dated March 31, 2009, details everything from the placement of the signs to materials used in the $1.5 million project, one of the key paragraphs contract comes near the end:

“Warranty Period: 10 years from date of Substantial Completion. The post, panel, footers, sign faces, materials and fasteners shall be free of defects, including, but not limited to the following: scaling, peeling, fading, warping, vinyl shrinking and corrosion.”

According to the TDA, this means that the Reading, Pa.-based L&H Signs should have repaired the peeling signs. L&H has contended that the TDA pressed them to use a different chemical than usual for protecting the signs, and that’s resulted in the peeling. While the two are currently embroiled in a legal battle, the TDA has contracted with Geograph Industries of Harrison, Ohio to fix the damaged signs.
