L.A. Hack: The Time An Artist Installed a Sign Over The State Highway and It Stayed Up There for 8 Years

Truly one of the greatest stories in the history of Los Angeles is that of Richard Ankrom and his quest to install a freeway sign that made the lives of L.A. drivers just a little bit easier.

It began more than a decade ago when Ankrom moved to downtown Los Angeles and took notice of a curious omission on the 110 Freeway. The I-5 exit, Ankrom saw, wasn’t indicated on the green overhead sign that directed drivers as the freeway split between the 5, 110, and 101. Whether intentional or not, it was clear that the California Department of Transportation (known as Caltrans) had made a mistake.

Ankrom, an artist and sign painter by trade, decided to make it his personal mission to fix the error, install the correct sign,  and do us all what he would later call an act of “guerrilla public service.”
