Why do Stanford's signs only cover North Palo Alto?
Original post made by Midtown resident on Mar 1, 2007
What I'm curious about is why do the signs come to a dead stop at Oregon Expressway? There is not a single sign in South Palo Alto. Is there a reason for this? Given the amount of signage, it seems they could have spared a few signs for us poor un-cultured southies.
Any ideas why this might have happened?
PS Menlo Park is also not included. The signs stop right after Stanford Mall.

My understanding is that the banners are along the portion of El Camino that is owned by Stanford. Hence, they run from around Stanford Ave. north to the Menlo Park border.

Apologies if I'm straying from the topic, but I'm uncertain there is enough signage for Stanford Hospital.
Maybe I've missed spotting them, but so far I've been unable to find signs for the hospital on El Camino, Sand Hill Rd., Junipero Serra Blvd., or Stanford Ave.
I did find a few signs for the hospital on Campus Drive, Arboretum Rd., and Quarry Rd.

Signs to a hospital are important - aren't they usually small and blue? (I recall something like that near El Camino Hospital...) I think when you exit 101 @ the big Embarcadero/Oregon intersection (at least coming from the south off 101) there is a small sign that says "hospital" directing people to go west on Embarcadero. I recently had a confused man ask me directions to the medical clinic (not the hospital) at the gas station on Embarcadero/101.
