Sturgis, SD - To meet new Federal requirements - the street, regulatory and advisory signs in Meade County will be replaced. A Federal Highway Safety Fund grant was acquired to accomplish this task with no local funds expended. Currently underway, this project should be completed by July 31, 2015.
Many non-maintained secondary roads will be signed:
- Stakes will be placed a minimum of ten feet off the shoulder of the road to provide the utility companies locations where signs will be placed.
- Salvaged signs will be recycled with the required higher reflective sheeting.
- Signs that can’t be recycled with be sold via surplus auction.
