DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Some Ohio motorists could think they are seeing double as they check out informational highway signs.
The Ohio Department of Transportation is spending $1.6 million to replace 167 signs in Montgomery and Clark counties in western Ohio. The signs are along Interstates 70 and 675, and Ohio 334 and 235.
The Dayton Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/QRivSZ ) that transportation officials say the older signs are nearly a decade old and are becoming harder to see because their reflectivity is wearing off.
The new signs should help Ohio's aging population of drivers. The letters are nearly three inches taller.
As work continues, the old signs and new signs are next to each other in some places. Work should be completed by Sept. 30.
