In-street Pedestrian Crossing Signs - removal for winter

Thought I'd make everyone aware that most (maybe all) of the popular, in-street pedestrian crossing signs will be removed for the winter. These signs - State Law, Stop for Pedestrians in crosswalks - are still just a "trial program." None (in our neighborhood) are permanently anchored and thus can't be left in place during snow removal season. Also, Transportation, Traffic & Parking (TT&P) wants to inventory and assess the signs. Many have been hit and damaged. They are also evaluating requests for more of these signs in addition to their own analysis for "how many and where" throughout the City.
