A jumble of highway signs and one traffic light, presented as outdoor art. It might be a statement about the stress of modern road travel. Or maybe not. Roadsideamerica.com Report... [08/12/2012]

Great stop as it's right off I-64 -- and you can also see the Washington Monument replica while you're at it![Rebecca Ferguson, 05/25/2010]
I found this intriguing piece of art while looking for the miniature replica of the Washington Monument in Mt. Vernon. Turns out they are about 200 feet apart from each other. It is a sculpture of sorts made up of various road signs. It's a perfect representation of how many of us feel while sometimes getting lost looking for that highly prized roadside attraction.
