Found in Valencia Spain. In Catalan, it means
“Colon St. is free of traffic”.

So when there’s a traffic jam, it would read “colon constipated?”

To add to DrLex’s suggestion (4th down) of restricted traffic messages… “Colon Blocked”, “Colon Backed Up”, “Colon Clog”, “Colon Mass”, “Colon Logjam”…

Citadella de Menorca is a town on the western end of Minorce.
Citadella = Citadel (Esp.)
Liquified Citadels?
Maybe they liquified the parisioners = Soylent Green vitamin drink.)

Let me explain,
ciutat in catala is city; ciutat > ciutadella
ville in francais is city; ville > village
ciudad in espagnol is city; ciudad > ciudadela (or pueblo/ita)

Essentially, think of it as Village Street, but yes it’s the same root as citadel. How the hell they came up with colon is beyond me! And flowing for fluid? Ah language..

Colon is the Spanish name for Columbus (as in Christopher Columbus)

@davonblr actually ciutadella is the catalonian for citadel. The same for the Spanish ciudadela.

well… Colon means Cristóbal Colón (Christopher Columbus), not what you all think! It isn’t a bad translation. Funny though.

is another language and another meaning, not a bug. eg: Pet in catalan is fart, and fart in catalan is sick.
Estic fart dels teus pets – I’m sick of your farts
