- Amazon building sign (Sign 1) is located at the east end of the south facing wall adjacent to the new traffic signals at the intersection with Belmont Road. As the nature of the facility is 24/7 operations, the sign is LED illuminated facing the northbound traffic on State Route 9A for visibility and will be dimmed 50% from approximately dusk to dawn. The bottom of the sign to the ground is approximately 18' and the top of sign to the ground is approximately 24' in height, therefor it will be several feet lower than the top height of the building wall itself.
