There’s a lot of work going on to improve visitors’ first impressions of Baltimore. First, the mayor made sure that train passengers passing through the city were greeted with a spiffed-up sign. Now the city is investing in brand-new welcome signage that will greet vehicular traffic as it enters the city.

As the Baltimore Business Journal reports, BOPA has selected five design firms to compete to revamp the city’s gateway signage. Their task is to create new welcome signs with¬†“fresh designs that are eye-catching, contemporary, creative and diverse.” The new signs will be installed next spring.

If the news has you panicking about the classic orange BALTIMORE sign on 295 that kind of looks like a cigarette, never fear–we get to keep that one.
