This is I-10 at Studemont on Wednesday morning. They started building this thing on Monday, and by Wednesday evening there were billboards on display. Once I realized what it was, I said to myself “Don’t we have some kind of billboard-restricting ordinance? How is it that a new billboard is being put up?” As it happens, an earlier version of that ordinance would have allowed some existing billboards to be relocated, but that wasn’t in the final deal. So I’m curious. Did that new ordinance restrict the construction of new billboards? If so, how is it this one got built?
UPDATE: Apparently, I wasn’t the only one who wondered about this.
