York sign updated, back at road’s edge

York’s public works department, signing on.

That was the word this week from city supervisor Dave Rudolph, who said that old cast-iron “Keystone Marker” — recently taken down by a city crew — has been replaced along East Prospect Street.

And what a difference a few days makes.

You’ll recall from that previous story that city crews went looking for this old marker, after the mayor’s office got a call that it was languishing at the side of the road, and could use some sprucing up.

Well, after some care from a city crew, that large marker is again looking as good as new, and nearly 100 years after it was first planted it’s back along the side of the road in York.

Rudolph offered a few more pics of the process.
