Do you think they put that sign to indicate the road condition or something else?
In this case it very well could be indicating the whole situation on this specific block. The entire area have seen better times and when we were there if didn’t show any sign of business activity. The big Mill in the back was closed and will either be demolished or potentially converted into something else. It is sad to see places falling apart and and no longer functioning, but at the same time it provides some good opportunities for photography and whatever else happens around it. Cycle of life.
