QA Fail: Natick Mall Exit Sign
Natick Mall is one of the busiest Malls in Massachusetts. You can find all sorts of interesting stores and eating places.
If your drive eastbound on Route 9 heading to the Natick Mall, it can be a bit tricky since there's no direct exit to the mall.
You can't take a left at a light to go to the Mall.
When you get to the Mall, you may see this sign:
QA Fails this sign
Not sure who this sign is for - it's pretty small and easily missed with all the other distractions.
The sign is incorrect. The next "exit" is a traffic light and taking a left will put you in Sherwood plaza across the street from the Natick Mall.
You need to be in the right lane to get to the Natick Mall which is on the left side of the road. You can't turn left at the lights - where you would think you would. The sign is too close to the light - so a car in the left lane would have to cross a couple of lanes to take the proper exit.
Oh, if you miss your exit? It's a 1-mile penalty to do a U-Turn back to the Mall.
Map to Show The Way
Here's a map to show the proper way to get to the Natick Mall parking lot:
Basically you have to drive by Sherwood Plaza and take the Speen St. Exit and the take the 9 West Framingham route. You'll end up making a U-turn and positioning yourself to several parking areas at the Natick Mall.
