The City of Bedford is getting a head start on the statewide road sign upgrade. Street Commissioner Dan Kirk, said the city has already applied for federal aid to start inventory of its existing signs. Kirk said he hopes to replace all the city’s stop signs by 2013, so they’re more visible at night.
“The most important thing is stop signs,” Kirk said. “People can see them a good distance back, your headlights will hit them, the retro-reflectivity then will help.”
All counties have until January to present a sign replacement plan to the state. All street signs in the state must be replaced by 2018.
