New and larger road signs are being mounted at county road intersections throughout Richland County. The engineer's office was awarded a $36,000 grant by the Ohio Department of Transportation, and is adding $9000 of its own money to replace 700 signs. Deputy Richland County Engineer Jim Lichtenwalter says the existing signs are 20 years old and do not meet ODOT and federal standards for size. He says the larger signs should prevent sudden stops as drivers try to find the road where they want to turn, and reduce the risk of an accident. The new signs will be installed by the end of September, with the old signs being removed this fall.
