It may seem odd as you say, but with the project's scope, a decade at least, sometimes a sign placed for the publics viewing on future developements or improvements may change dramatically over the length of the project, hence from yr. to yr. a new sign would have to be erected/designed.. As you say an odd location per se that is not present at the main gate, for tourists/visitors to see.

A 20 storey bldg. for example, already UC may have a sign showing the completed project but it will pretty much be what you see when completed. But a project depending on donations,change in those involved in planning..etc.. involved over the decade may see changes in the design or concept of the project.

I've been mainly involved in the(non-public areas of the zoo, ie: transport of a orphaned MB. Blk. Bear Cub on it's way to Northern Ont.) So I hear snippets from staff but not those in the planning/designing/ areas of the various enlocures etc.
