New high-tech signs highlight downtown South Bend attractions
SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Finding your way around downtown South Bend has gotten a little easier.
The city installed about 20 blue and white information signs giving directions to local hot spots in the downtown area such as the Cove, the library, and dozens of restaurants.
"I think people sometimes don't realize how close they are. So, it's to emphasize how easy and close they are to walk," Michael Divita, the South Bend City Planner, said.
The signs are also high-tech. You can scan the signs with your smart phone and get maps and other other information.
